Hi Everyone, 

 

With all the extremely knowledgeable members here I wondered whether anyone could identify the background music in this video please? I initially thought it might be something by Scott Joplin or another of the early ragtime composers but now I'm not so sure. 

 

 

Thanks for any help. 

 

Gregory

Shazam is a really useful little app for this sort of thing - I pointed it at the screen and it correctly picked up Dixie Dimples by James Scott, played by Dave Majchrzak.

Wow! Thanks so much!! You deserve a gold medal and also thank you for introducing me to Shazam. I've never come across that app before. That's a wonderfully useful app. It's strange that I had several other composers in mind but James Scott wasn't one of them that I had thought of. It's a very "catchy" piece of music. I'm going to get a copy of it and add it to my "to learn" list.  :D

Oh yes - I’d forgotten about shazam - my OH uses it (sometimes annoyingly when I’m trying to guess the composer without being told!) 

I did have a listen, and I can why you thought of Scott J - although his ragtimes are generally played straight, I think, not swung. 

Catchy indeed, and a new one to me.

Great fun - I've just downloaded it from IMSLP.  I'll have to wait till my OH is out of the house though before I can practise it, though!

Yes, I really like it and downloaded it too but haven't started to practise it yet. I think it's great fun and at the moment I'm collecting some "fun" pieces to learn for light relief such as pieces by Zez Confrey. Also I'm revising Felix Arndt's "Nola". I used to play that quite well years ago but am out of practice. Another one I really like is "Waiting for the Robert E. Lee" by Lewis Muir.

In the pipe organ world - fun pieces used in concerts are often referred to as 'lollipops' !

Not just the organ world - Beecham was famous for his lollipops!
