I think most, sadly, play ragtime too fast. Joplin himself cautioned about that.

I remember buying the Scott Joplin w/Joshua Rifkin album with I was in college in 1971, as recommended by my girlfriend. It was a real eye-opener. Learning Joplin's personal history makes the music all the more important, and poignant. WHen The Sting came out in 1974, I was jumping for joy...that Joplin's rags were reaching a huge new audience, as the music deserved.

I remember when The Sting came out. Never saw the movie but I loved the music on the trailers for it, and I have been a Joplin fan ever since. He had an amazing level of talent.

Scott Joplin was played at my Grandpas funeral per his request. It was the best celebration of life I have ever been too and this happy music helped. Now I sit in my office and listen to it and think of Gramps.

Joplin and his fellow ragtime composers rejuvenated American popular music, fostering an appreciation for African American music among European Americans by creating exhilarating and liberating dance tunes, changing American musical taste.
