Tempo of Scott Joplin Rags
By Don Cox

On the first CD of the Jelly Roll Morton Library of Congress recordings
(Rounder CD 1091), Morton demonstrates Maple Leaf Rag played "St Louis
style" (much too fast), and then in his own Jazz style (at a suitable
tempo, but with Jazz rather than ragtime rhythms).

These are worth hearing as they show well the difference between
ragtime and jazz.
