Structure: INTRO AA BB A TRIO-INTRO CC

Allegro

Yet another variation on 'Kitten on the Keys' [Oct 12]. Rhythmically more complex than 'Witch', it is also more melodic in its way.
B-section is unusual in that the melody is in the left hand.
Altogether a first rate rag filled with inventive figures.

Structure: INTRO VAMP AA INTRO-2 BB INTRO-1 VAMP A TRIO-INTRO C

Moderato (!)

Structurally akin to 'Kitten on the Keys', it is more like 'Ivories' in mood.
The mysterious mood is more pronounced as the introduction and A-section are both in the minor mode (E flat minor).
Section-B is probably the most rhythmically complex of anything found in Novelty rags (B flat minor).
An exotic and very typical Confrey sound here results from a series of ninth chords built on augmented triads, descending in intervals of a minor third.
Section-C harks back to Joplin's flag-waving endings but in the Novelty style (A flat major).
The ending is a rhythmic surprise.

Stucture: INTRO AA B INTRO A B TRIO-INTRO C INTRO-2 D

Allegro Moderato

This is Confrey's first essay in what was to become the Novelty ragtime idiom.
As we know, ragtime's ebullient feelings are obtained in the major tonality.
Consider then Confrey's innovation of starting the first section in a minor mode (b minor) but with feelings that are happy and bright.
A unique rag and the first in the Novelty ragtime style.

Keys: B minor - D minor - G major -

Structure: INTRO AA BB A CC

A brilliant Novelty Rag which imitates the 'Nickolodeon' - an automated player piano machine - which frequently breaks down.
The third section is the beauty with a marvelous break.

Structure: INTRO AA BB A TRIO-INTRO CC

A-section begins with a sweeping, cheerful melodic line largely in consecutive fourths which creates a faintly mysterious atmosphere.
Section B fulfills that mysterious promise with the forthright bunch of triplets we found in 'Kitten on the Keys'.
C-section combines the rhythmic contrasts of the first two sections giving a sens of completion.

I got Rhythm, as well as being an extremely popular chord-sequence among jazz musicians, provides an excellent example of ART TATUM at up-tempo.
On the recording available, the opening 8 bars are also used as an introduction to the first chorus.

This was probably written during the early years in St. Louis when they lived together and, with 'Kismet Rag' were the "Joplin" rags Stark referred to (see Sugar Cane). The melodic lines are fresh and very busy, with a contrasting trio, probably Joplin's contribution.
