Jazz, Swing, Ragtime, and the Early 20th Century

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if anyone else likes this style of music as much as I do.  I've always liked when songs get a Jazz remix and found it to be one of the most relaxing types of music.  I would honestly say that I like Ragtime best though, can't beat that piano.   I've always considered the 1920s-40s my favorite time in American History as well.  Here's a few of my favorites:

(Boardwalk Empire does great remixes BTW)

 

So does anyone else like this style of music or the time period?

A musician I like is St Germain. Nice jazz. Check this album out.

As for swing I usually listen to electro swing rather than swing alone.

 

And I used to be able to play the mapple leaf rag on the piano a couple years ago ^^. Scott joplin is fun to play.

 

Half of them are blocked but what I heard sounded pretty good. 

 

By electro swing do you mean something like this? (Another favorite of mine)

I've got the sheet music for all of Scott Joplin's rags.  There is a lot of interesting stuff going on in his music; he was a really good composer.

I can play the Entertainer, and Maple Leaf Rag to some degree.  Also, Gladiolus Rag and Magnetic Rag.

Yes, I could say swing is among my favourite genres along with electro swing. Parov Stelar is great and I'm always wondering whether I prefer him over Caravan Palace or the other way around. As for Jazz, why of course I like it, but I am more of a jazz fusion guy than a free jazz guy. Like this:
