Long Description: T Sax Swings Maple Leaf Rag, Corporate Music, Corporate Jazz Music, music for videos, music for video and music for film
Keywords: There have been many claims about the sales of the "Maple Leaf Rag", for example that 1 million copies of the sheet music were sold in the composer's lifetime, making Scott Joplin the first musician to sell 1 million copies of a piece of instrumental music and no one sells a million copies of sheet music today.
The tune continued to be in the repertoire of jazz bands decades later, with artists such as the New Orleans Rhythm Kings in the 1920s, and Sidney Bechet in the 1930s giving it up-to-date adaptations, maintaining a timeless quality to it. As an indication of its persistent popularity and recognition, it was performed on phonograph records six times in each of the three decades after its first publication. In 1930, it was featured in the gangster movie classic, The Public Enemy.
I have tried to give you the best swing version of this instrumental ever.
Given air time this could be a hit.
