Joplin's "Entertainer" reached high acclaim in 1973 as the most recognizable theme from the movie classic, "The Sting". This Academy Award-Winning film was solely responsible for the resurgence of ragtime in general, but more specifically brought renewed interest in the works of Scott Joplin. "The Maple Leaf Rag", unlike so many others, became quite popular during Joplin's lifetime, so much so that it was the first sheet of music to sell over one million copies. Though these two pieces are his most famous works, true Joplin enthusiasts know there is so much more to experience beyond the traditional favorites. This best selling 64 page collection, arranged for easy jazz piano by Jim Progris, features twelve Joplin titles presented in chronological fashion. Begin your journey in 1899 with the "Maple Leaf Rag" and close in 1917 with the "Reflection Rag" which was published after he was laid to rest. Jim Progris is one of the most highly acclaimed jazz piano authors and respected educators of our time. As a long standing faculty member and department head from the University of Miami's outstanding music program, Jim brings an educational background that is superior to most and unmatched by many in this industry. This one of a kind Santorella Publication displays the genius of Joplin from the start of his career to the final days. Study the history of Ragtime Piano with these slightly simplified arrangements for the late beginner or early intermediate student. This best selling title is also available with a complete performance CD, which is an ideal practice tool. Whether you are a beginner or been playing for years, Joplin's Greatest Rags for Easy Jazz Piano will be a perfect addition to your CD collection and a welcomed addition to any pianists' repertoire.

  • August 27, 2010 Fantastic sounding Rag music, yet so easy to play!

    This EZ Rag music book with CD included with it sounds just like the "original", the performance CD is of outstanding sound quality of all of the pieces in the book, exact same notes, played just perfect so you can get the beat & rythum down so easy! This is worth...

    a 100's more $ than you have to pay! After learning these Rags, you can easily go on to the "original masterpieces" of all of the many different Ragtime composers - no problem! GREAT FUN!
