I’m spending the evening relaxing to some Scott Joplin.
There will be three songs that you’ll have heard of. His most famous is The Entertainer.
Then there’s a song called Maple Leaf Rag. If you check this out on Youtube, played by chocotiger, you’ll know the tune.
Then there’s the third, which you will know if you’ve watched the Curious Case of Benjamin Button which is slower, but reminds me of how sad the film is.
It’s amazing how this guy was able to record and perform freely despite being black and dying 50 years before the Civil Rights movement in America.
