CD Reviews

PLAYED by Bolling; NOT composed by Bolling
Frances Richey | 09/11/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I own this album on cassette. It is an exciting selection of classic ragtime pieces by many different composers, all play impeccably by Bolling. So far as I can recall, none of the compositions are composed by the artist.I note you do not list it under "jazz" but surprisingly under "classical." Ragtime is an integral part of jazz, and thus this album seems to this listener to be in the wrong category as "classical.""
Positively infectious!

"Claude Bolling's wonderful "Original Ragtime" was recorded in March 1966, but the music as remains fresh and sparkling today as when he recorded it. How can you go wrong with the combination of Claude Bolling and ragtime music?! This is wonderful stuff. "Waiting for the Robert E. Lee" is a masterpiece of technique--Bolling throws in little firecrackers of counterpoint to the tune so that it lights right up. "Mississippi Rag" has the feeling of something you might have heard in a darkened movie house while watching a silent movie in which a villainous landlord was trying to boot out the poor lady with no rent money--it's truly evocative. "Perfect Rag" is very nearly just that: perfect. A trilling waterfall of piano notes, it is a treat to hear. Everyone's favorite "Maple Leaf Rag" is here, as are "Kitten on the Keys" and "Harlem Strut" and many others. A real thrill for Bolling and ragtime fans!"
Virtuoso rags

"This CD features very upbeat and virtuosic performances of some classic ragtime pieces by a wide assortment of composers. Note that the "buzz" that is audible on occasion is the sound of Mr. Bolling humming the tunes to himself."
