An eclectic and interesting collection of ragtime era dance tunes, including a few rags. Many of these memorable pieces started dance crazes of their own, such as the Grizzly Bear, Kangaroo Hop, Cubanola Glide and Ballin' the Jack. Others are just exciting to play, like Eubie Blake's Chevy Chase, Too Much Mustard, and the wonderful latin-influenced Panama. As a testament to these fine pieces, many of them lived years longer than Disco, and are certainly as much fun as the Mashed Potato... or is that potatoe? Anyhow, a fascinating look at the ragtime era that will interest afficianado and newbie alike.

This is a most unique book. Music sounds like ragtime, but is a little less sophisticated. Very catchy tunes and fun to play. If anyone knows of other books with this type of music, please let me know!
