  • About This Album

    Joshua Rifkin's Nonesuch recordings of the Joplin rags in the early 1970s ignited a national passion for ragtime jazz and, wrote New York magazine, "created, almost alone, the Scott Joplin revival." The jaunty syncopations and lively melodies of the genre shine through on favorites like “Maple Leaf Rag” and “The Entertainer.”
