composed in 1914 by Julien Porret , French virtuoso of the trumpet & cornet à pistons , pianist , compositor and pionneer of jazz & ragtime music in France . ( nylon strings ; bass lowered to B )
Hey Marc, that is a great tune, and doesn't the banjo sound good with that lowered bass.
You certainly choose some superb tunes for your videos. Is that a recording of Dad playing the piano?
I never really associated ragtime with France. My mind associates it with being an American, and later British, phenomenon. I live and learn! Julien Porret certainly was a talented composer!
One thing Marc, that is a plectrum banjo you are playing. There should be a Lawes against it :-)
Yes , the Bj sound great with the B bass ; i came from a piano arrangment ( French cakewalk writed for piano & brass , i guess , so special melody _) i decided it sounded better with the B bass & the plectrum , specialy when i browse the strings to make sound the strange chord . I have send the scores .
1 month ago , Maurice André passed away , he was a French trompet 'player well knowed in all the world ; same thing fot Julien Porret but some years before . I readed he started to play ragtime because during the WW1 , he was in San Francisco with his band " the French army band " & he learned there
Thank you Marc. That is very interesting. Perhaps I was correct when I said Ragtime was from the USA :-)
Marc has sent me the score and it is now available to download from our MUSIC LIBRARY
Well done! Brilliant playing, the bass to B is an interesting option which I've been looking into lately as well. It can really help with some tunes.
There is a low A in bar 4 - is this note not played or do you substitute another note for it?
Hi Tom ; yes i made an arrangment from the piano score ; these 4 first bars are the intro ; according to the score there are in "unisson " with the piano , i have solved the problem of the low A by playing the whole intro one octave upper ; i should have mentioned this on the Bj_score
