Scott Joplin - The Entertainer
"The Entertainer" is sub-titled "A rag time two step", which was a form of dance popular until about 1911, and a style which was common among rags written at the time. Scott Joplin was the first classically trained black composer to become a household name in America. Ragtime was eventually succeeded by jazz.
First published in 1911 this was Irving Berlin's first major hit. There is some evidence, although inconclusive, that Berlin borrowed the melody from a draft of A Real Slow Drag by Scott Joplin that had been submitted to a publisher.
