Classic Ragtime Roots & Offshoots

Classic Ragtime Roots & Offshoots contains a selection of 25 rags and blues. Much of this is familiar ("Maple Leaf Rag," "Beaumont Rag," "South Street Stomp"), but the quality of performances makes this a necessary sampler for the curious. Not only do artists like Jelly Roll Morton and Sugar Underwood perform their own compositions, but performers like Muggsy Spanier and Tommy Dorsey are featured, elevating the compilation to the upper echelon of ragtime collections.
