Description by

Max Morath's mother, a first-rate movie pianist, spurred on his passion to play and expose ragtime music to a wider audience. Ragtime and other turn-of-the-century music are treated to compelling interpretations on these two albums from the vaults of Epic Records. The Jordanaires, Elvis's back-up vocal group, augment Morath's playing. Highlights are tunes such as Scott Joplin's "Maple Leaf Rag," "I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now," and "Take Me Out To The Ball Game."
