"This item is part of the Folkways archives.  The original liner notes from the LP are included."

Catchy melodies, individual interpretation, and flashy technique epitomize "novelty" ragtime, a style of ragtime that emerged after World War I. This recording features "the effervescence of authentic ragtime" through virtuosic performances by composer-pianists, and includes a rare solo by Clarence Jones, one of the few black musicians to record novelty rags.
