A Little Sting That Doesn't Hurt a Bit
!Edwin C. Pauzer | New York City | 01/22/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)
"For catchy music that will add pep to your step and put glide in your stride even if you're sitting down, "The Sting" will do it without seriously raising your blood pressure. Even though the tempos are fast in most songs, it won't make you want to drive any faster or distract you from other tasks.
This is my idea of mood music. The songs with clapping and the mute over the trombones give these instrumentals a Roaring 20's or honky-tonk sound that will get your fingers tapping as mine are doing now rhythmically. Nevertheless, Joplin's music is timeless unlike other hits of the era that sound odd or dated. Hearing "Pineapple Rag" while watching my DVD of "Baseball" made me remember how much I missed the music that my father and I listened to all the way to our hometown in PA, and back to New York. (I wonder whatever happened to that eight-track that I'm sure would be worth some serious pennies today)!
"The Entertainer," "Easy Winners,"and "Ragtime Dance" make you wish you learned to play the clarinet, the violin, and the piano. (You'd be the life of the party, playing this stuff). I'm at least glad I can play them in my imagination. This is the wonderful effect the score has on your mood and attitude. "Solace" is anything but somber, and is also good for the psyche and your digestion.
Try the music. There is very little sting in the price or the sound.
