Promoting New Music Sun Day 22nd June
Slippery Elm Rag (1912)
Clarence Woods (1888-1956) of Carthage, Missouri produced this piano rag in 1912. It is a very unique and unusual rag but one also employing some of the expected ragtime conventions (after all, it still needs to sound like a rag).
You will hear some refreshing harmonies, textures, and sounds which might be explained in terms of Woods' occupation as movie house pianist. Listen also for those walking basses and blues turnarounds.
Pianist George Peter Tingley plays Clarence Woods' SLIPPERY ELM RAG (1912).

Two Different Paths
In Lieu of Flowers (first version)
by EvilFactman and amateurpro
This is a tune I did with a tune from amateurpro. It is a serious piece about the search for oneself. I think the words are good even if there are no answers. Sometimes as you get older you realize that there are a lot of things you just will not be able to understand and that's OK.
