Ragtime sirs!

This my interpretation about three stride pieces. Perhaps a little bit too fast.

Unfortunately, audio quality isn't optimal.

I liked these very much. Are you using the Dapogny transcriptions ? I personally find Morton very difficult to play effectively, much more so than ragtime or Waller, whose Alligator Crawl you also play well. There is something quite awkward about many of Morton's figurations, or so it seems to me. The recording treble tended to overpower the bass in the Morton but not so much in the Joplin. Perhaps you simply play Morton basses more lightly. In any case very enjoyable.

Thank you Ted! smile

My arrangement is inspired by Legend of 1900 (Tornatore's film).
Anyway yes, I used Dapogny transciptions.

I my opinion there are 3 effects

1) my yamaha U3 isn't in optimal position (beetween an wardrobe and desk).

2) The canonA470 has a awful microphone. Now in the last performance, I use Jammin HR5. (my girlfriend's present. smile )

3) Last but not less important, my name isn't Oscar Peterson grin grin grin . Joking aside I'm not a professional.

I will take soon other ragtime recordings whith my new microphone. thumb

If you want to listen and advise me on my subsequent recordings you are welcome.

"the entertainer" is way too fast ...
could you film "the entertainer" again at a slower tempo something like 60 or 70 ?
i really would enjoy it ....
and also why not a different angle like this one ?

Quite good barrelhouse rag playing, foster! You're strong enough to maintain the energy and pulse at these breakneck speeds, and it's exhilirating to listen to. Having said that, I wouldn't want to listen to this style any more than 10 minutes or so -- the relentless stride bass wears out its welcome for me after that. Just out of curiosity, is there any interest, or a place to play these rags, in Italy? Here in the US, there are entire local chapters and major venues for ragtime piano (I believe the biggest is in Joplin, MO). But I've never heard of anything in Italy -- opera, yes; but rag, no!

Just a minor note that the Joplin Society is based in Sedalia, MO which is quite far from Joplin, MO. They have a big festival every year and I've thought about going down this year to check it out. The Scott Joplin society has a website at scottjoplin.org with details.

Nice to see more ragtime and early jazz love here! I enjoyed.
