Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Although the use of brass instruments never figured into the original design of these peices, ragtime is a natural fit to the timbre of a brass ensemble, and this music has been copiously transcribed for brass. Scott Joplin is the name most immediately associated with ragtime. However, his compositions account for only five of the seventeen represented here, so there are many other ragtime composers to become aquainted with. Fine playing from the Avatar Brass Quintet.
