CD Reviews

A great selection
(5 out of 5 stars)

"David Thomas Roberts is an outstanding ragtime piano player, but the best thing about this CD is the selection of rags. Many of the rags are not on any other recordings but were very popular folk pieces at the turn of the last century. I especially enjoy the Charles Hunter pieces such as Cotton Bolls and Possum & Taters. I would rate it as one of the best ragtime collections available."
Just what Piano rags ought to be!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are a fan of piano rags don't miss this one! I can listen to it a lot. The way David Thomas plays is not too fast or too slow. Having just the right feeling of emotional sentiment, the music is never cloying or flashy. Something for a happy yet reflective mood. Enjoy!"
