And Then, When Joplin and Base-Ball Intersect
Madness

Joplin By the Sea

I only watched 27 seconds of this, the Federico Mondelci i Sax Quartet, playing Scott Joplin's "Easy Winners" rag,
to decide to share it with you.  It IS all that GOOD!

THIS IS EXQUISITE,
THIS IS WHAT SCOTT JOPLIN INTENDED for his music--
to be fun, to be happy, to inspire, -- and in the case of the "Easy Winners" here, Scott Joplin loved Baseball (*for which this piece was written), he wanted this song to be reminiscent of the beauty of the game 'Baseball', and to be played at baseball games all across America.


  
Even baseball games held on the beach...  just watch out for those long fly balls to right-center field~!
