NEW FOR 2019! In the winter of 2018, 13 cardboard boxes of American popular music, collected by the late ragtime pianist Johnny Maddox (1927-2018) were carefully shipped to the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra for performance and preservation. On this, the Peacherine’s fourth album, we perform music from the collection, featuring stunning musical selections by Scott Joplin, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, John Philip Sousa, and lesser-known composers of the early 1900s. Featuring guest pianist Adam Swanson, vocalist William Edwards, and two never-before released duets featuring Johnny Maddox and Adam Swanson, this CD is sure to delight listeners and to celebrate the joy that is found in America’s first popular music style: RAGTIME!

“One of the finest groups of its kind… impeccably performed.” – Scott Yanow, The Syncopated Times
Ragtime, the uniquely American, syncopated musical style, captures the energy and romanticism of life during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. On this, the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra’s third album, we seek to explore some of America’s most celebrated ragtime-era works, alongside forgotten and rediscovered favorites, performed as audiences would have heard them over a century ago. Featuring twenty-two (22) numbers (70 minutes), this album premiers several never-before recorded orchestrations besides classics by Scott Joplin, Irving Berlin, George M. Cohan, and the creators of America’s first popular music. Andrew Greene, director of the PRSO, contributes a 24 page booklet of liner notes on the tracks, including rare photographs, sheet music covers, and more. Featuring Max Keenlyside, pianist, and William Edwards, vocalist.

Mel B. Kaufman (1879-1932), the “King of the One Step,” was one of the most popular and prolific composers of syncopated dance music in the 1910s and early ’20s. His work was featured by such bandleaders as Vincent Lopez, Earl Fuller, Eugene Jaudas, Charles Prince, and Joseph C. Smith, and his lively, catchy melodies found their way into the soundtracks of hundreds of films and animated cartoons well into the 1950s. This first-ever CD devoted to Kaufman’s music features twenty-five (25) numbers (68 minutes), including several selections recorded for the first time. All of the pieces are performed off the original orchestrations using antique instruments and authentic performance techniques. Andrew Greene, director of the PRSO and the world’s leading authority on Mel B. Kaufman, contributes an in-depth essay on Kaufman’s life and work in the accompanying 40-page booklet, which also includes dozens of rare photographs and original sheet music cover art, a comprehensive Kaufman discography, filmography, and more. Featuring Richard Dowling, pianist, and William Edwards, vocalist.
