Joplin played pre-ragtime 'jig-piano' in various red-light districts throughout the mid-South, and some claim he was in Sedalia and St. Louis during this time. In 1893 Joplin was in Chicago for the World's Fair. While in Chicago, he formed his first band playing cornet and began arranging music for the group to perform. In mid-February 1973 under the direction of Gunther Schuller, The New England Conservatory Ragtime Ensemble recorded an album of Joplin's rags taken from the period collection Standard High-Class Rags called Joplin: The Red Back Book. The album won a Grammy Award as Best Chamber Music Performance in that year, and went on to become Billboard magazine's Top Classical Album of 1974. The group subsequently recorded two more albums for Golden Crest Records: More Scott Joplin Rags in 1974 and The Road From Rags To Jazz in 1975.

The Red Back Book/Elite Syncopations. The Red Back Book: New England Conservatory Ragtime Ensemble, Gunther Schuller cond; E. J. Stark, arr. Elite Syncopations: The Southland Stingers, Ralph Grierson, p; George Spomhalz, arr and cond. Paragon ragtime orchestra. On the Joplin album, I prefer Gunther Schuller's group, the New England Conservatory Ragtime Ensemble, to the Southland Stingers, but that's just personal preference. The Paragon album has many small musical delights, and is more showtime-ish. I haven't pointed to particular songs or particular players on either of these albums.

Redirected from The New England Ragtime Ensemble). The New England Ragtime Ensemble (originally The New England Conservatory Ragtime Ensemble) was a Boston chamber orchestra dedicated to the music of Scott Joplin and other ragtime composers.

In 1973 Gunther Schuller and the New England Conservatory Ragtime Ensemble recorded seven of the charts plus a new reworking of "Sugar Cane"; a pair of piano solos by Myron Romanul (of "The Entertainer" and "Sun Flower Slow Drag") round out this highly enjoyable set. Hearing Joplin's music interpreted by a group consisting of trumpet, trombone, clarinet, flute/piccolo, tuba, piano, bass, drums and a string quartet helps cast new light on these vintage themes.
