They All Played Ragtime : The True Story of an American Music (editie 1960)
They All Played Ragtime door Rudi Blesh
"They All Played Ragtime is a lively and fascinating book about a lively and fascinating American music that flowered with the dawn of this century, faded with World War I, and today is staging an unprecedented nationwide revival. Here - in an updated, expanded new edition - is the whole true story of ragtime, from its Gay 90's origins in the bordellos of Sedalia and St. Louis, to its sweeping successes in American and Europe. Here are the lives of the colorful men who created the intoxicating ragtime syncopations - authentic, homespun geniuses like Scott Joplin, James Scott, Joe Lamb, and many more - once forgotten but now being affectionately and respectfully remembered. For general readers there are nostalgia and romance in these pages. For serious students there are exhaustive lists of composers, compositions, piano rolls, and sound recordings. For performers there are the complete piano scores of 16 rags, from yesterday to today, most of them previously unpublished and available only here. The only history of ragime, They all Played Ragtime is required reading for all who love America and its native music."--Back cover.
