What's Ragtime?

The digital reincarnation of the ragtime era!

Ragtime Piano

Ragtime piano music first appeared in the late 1800's as a syncopated evolution of March music. The ragtime era dominated the music scene of the 1st decade of the 20th century, featuring ragtime, blues, and stride piano, which was the foundation for novelty piano, modern jazz, and blues rock.

Ragtime Press and HV Recording predominately feature pre-1930's music styles on audio Compact Disc. All piano solos and vocals are recorded direct to hard disk.
