Summary
"This biography follows Joplin's life from the brothels and bars of St. Louis to the music mills of Tin Pan Alley as he introduced a syncopated, lively style to classical piano. Joplin's effect on popular music is closely identified with his era and the role of African Americans on the music scene of the United States"--Provided by publisher
