Magic Waltz 1900 Pdf 17

Born in 1900, Pennsylvania, Roy Smeck was a virtuoso ukulele performer. Smeck had an incredible technique, and a great entertain attitude. He applies a lot of funny techniques on ukulele, like tossing the instrument into the air, spinning his uke like a rockabilly bass player or tapping the woodwork with percussive breaks: basically, Smeck has anticipated a lot of advanced guitarists techniques of the latter half of the 20th century.

For the five years he held his Junior Cook-Blue Mitchell quintet together, Silver had the perfect combination of his high-quality tunes and a band that had a magic interpretative touch. They all played for each other to such an extent that the group became one of the true 1960s greats. Song For My Father features this group on two tracks, but not on the famous title tune, which instead ushers in the brilliant but short-lived quintet featuring Joe Henderson and Carmell Jones. No cause to fear: all remains in place for a classic that still casts its spell. (KS)

Ragtime piano music ordinarily evokes the idea of rhythmic music with a syncopated beat and "intoxicating effect." Because most so-called ragtime "waltzes" lack this driving beat (due to the structure of the 3/4 waltz time), most ragtime waltzes never gained the popularity of traditional ragtime marches and two-steps. Describing ragtime waltzes as a "minor genre," Hasse (1985:4) supports this argument in these terms:

. . . [W]altzes are in 3/4 meter, while most rags are written in 2/4. Because of the metrical differences, the piano rag's forward propulsion is noticeably lacking in the waltzes. Consequently, ragtime waltzes never became widely popular.

Despite the relative lack of general popularity of ragtime waltzes, a number of ragtime waltzes have become fairly wide known or at least often mentioned in the ragtime literature and played and recorded by ragtime performers. Some of the better known ragtime waltzes include Harry Guy's Echoes from the Snowball Club: Rag Time Waltz (below), Charles Johnson's Belle of Havana Waltzes (below), Scott Joplin's ragtime waltzes, including Bethena (below) and Pleasant Moments (below), the waltzes of James Scott (below), and Fred Stone's Silks and Rags Waltzes (below).

Axel Christensen gives some attention to ragtime waltzes in his various instruction manuals. At pages 28 and 29 of Christensen's Rag-Time Instruction Book For Piano (circa 1909) (available here), for example, the author describes how to "rag" a waltz in these terms:

To convert a waltz into waltz ragtime (see Example II) we follow exactly the same rules as usual, except that we omit the last two counts of the ragtime movements [note: for more on what he means by "ragtime movements," see here]. This gives us only 6 beats to every movement, instead of eight. Count number 1 should be accented quite strong, while counts 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 are played with the usual firm and uniform touch.

Set out in the table below are links to over 325 (free) sheet covers and sheet music for ragtime and ragtime-era waltzes. I have been somewhat arbitrary in the compositions I have included (there were a lot more waltzes written in the ragtime era than those listed below). Compositions are included in the list below based on one or more of the following criteria: (i) they are waltzes by known ragtime composers or major ragtime publishers; (ii) they are ragtime waltzes or syncopated waltzes; (iii) or they are from the ragtime era and are otherwise interesting or unusual. I have generally avoided including waltz songs (i.e., ragtime era waltzes with lyrics), although the list of sheet music below includes some waltz songs where the composer is well known for other ragtime compositions. Set out below the table is a list of additional ragtime waltzes that I have yet been unable to locate, including some ragtime waltzes from ragtime revival composers.

The following compositions are identified in the literature as ragtime or ragtime-era waltzes but I have been unable to obtain copies of them. Some of the pieces are still protected by copyright. If I am able to obtain copies of any of the following pieces that are in the public domain, I will digitize them and add them to the table above.

To my knowledge, there is no commercially available recordings that contain only ragtime waltzes. As such, those wanting to listen to ragtime waltzes must look for ragtime recordings with individual ragtime waltzes included on them or seek out the following "complete works" of each of Scott Joplin, James Scott and Joseph Lamb:

In addition, a number of ragtime enthusiasts or other organizations have made free MIDI or other recordings of ragtime music available, including recordings of ragtime waltzes, some of which include:
