King Of Ragtime Writers
Biograph Records enchantingly documents the early-1900s transition from ragtime to jazz through a series of digital recordings of piano roll performances. A logical place to start listening is with Scott Joplin compositions -- more specifically, King of the Ragtime Writers, which offers eight rolls from the turn of the century and nine that were cut in the 1960's. The particular collection is distinguished by its faithfulness to the original scores.
