Canadian Brass: Rag-Ma-Tazz (1975)

Boot Records BMC 3004

I found this in a dollar bin at a Toronto record store, in great shape. I enjoy Christmas brass recordings (I have two by the Canadian Brass), and I like ragtime music, so I figured I'd enjoy this recording of Joplin (and other) rags.

With an essay on the back cover by "Canadian radio commentator" Richard Gale about the then-current revival of ragtime music titled "The Rag Rage."


  1. There seemed to be flare ups of ragtime popularity in the 1950's, 60's and 70's but nothing since- we're over due!
