Recorded "live" before a packed house at the Recoleta Cultural Center in Buenos Aires, pianists Brian Holland and Bryan Wright and drummer Danny Coots take listeners on a thrilling journey through the world of jazz, stride, boogie woogie, and ragtime. From showpieces by Willie "The Lion" Smith, James P. Johnson, and Fats Waller, to the elegant "classic" rags of Scott Joplin and Ford Dabney, to tangos and pop songs of the 1920s, it's a varied and engaging program full of toe-tapping rhythms, lilting melodies, and good fun! The accompanying 24-page booklet is packed with photos, detailed notes, and an introduction by ragtime legend Max Morath. 68 minutes.
