Roy Bargy

Although somewhat peripheral to jazz, pianist Roy Bargy recorded six piano solos (mostly in the novelty ragtime style) of interest during 1922-24 that, along with his 11 piano rolls, were reissued on a Folkways LP. Bargy had had 12 years of piano lessons starting from when he was five. He had originally planned to become a classical pianist, but instead started working in the popular music field. He played piano and organ at local movie houses, organized his own school orchestra and in 1919 began cutting piano rolls. The following year he was hired as pianist, arranger and musical director for the Benson Orchestra of Chicago. In the mid-1920s, Bargy worked for a time with Isham Jones and then gained his greatest fame as pianist with Paul Whiteman (1928-40), where his "legitimate" technique allowed him to play both credible jazz and classical solos (such as "Rhapsody In Blue"). Bargy spent his later years working in the early '40s with Lanny Ross on radio and served as Jimmy Durante's musical director from 1943-63 before retiring. Bargy's best-known composition is "Pianoflage." ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Volume way too low this cut. Sad.
I must say I'm a little surprised he's not grouped with Zez Confrey-- the "Piano Syncopations " series was a direct response to "Kitten on the Keys" and other Confrey novelties.

You can also hear Bargy playing on another album of Pandora's-- see "Hits of '25" and try the track "Remember" (Although you might have to create a station of this track to hear the piano part.)
