+++ toller Pianist - dazu einen schönen Stummfilm - klasse +++
This is ragtime. "Swing" as such didn't exist yet. And ragtime was all about an individual's variations....They were "ragging" the time (signature) of the piece.
Jelly Roll in 1923 - before Louis had redefined what individual soloists could do in small group jazz. This is good swinging stuff.
great old jazz
