Southern Rag Medleys
Southern Rag Medleys composed by Blind Boone. Arranged by James Boatman. For saxophone quartet. No. 1 - Strains From the Alleys; No. 2 - Strains From the Flat Branch. Grade 3. Duration 7:25. Published by Alry Publications (AY.SQ-12).
Originally composed to preserve favorite local Negro melodies, these medleys blend classical music with ragtime and the blues. These arrangements are quite appropriately arranged for Sax quartet, as the Saxophone was in its "Golden Era" in the early 1900's.
