Joplin's "The Maple Leaf Rag" Played Backward

Alright, this is getting Twisted~!  
By the Great, Jelly Roll Morton, of all people?

Now that's JAZZ,

incandecent, aflammable JAZZ, 
a lighted match thrown from one Ragtime Piano player lateraled to the other~!

It's Jelly Rolls' honoring of Scott Joplin~!

I'm loving this, love the generous backward, sugary phrasing, & variations on Joplins' first widely-accepted, Genius compositionThe Maple Leaf Rag,
Circa 1905~!
