ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ragtime pianist John Reed-Torres is an Afro-Chicano-American (of Apache ancestry), formerly self-taught, against-the-grain pianist and composer from South Central Los Angeles. An Alumnus of Pasadena City College, and the Neighborhood Music School (Boyle Heights) Mr. Reed-Torres is a rarity indeed who despite familial socioeconomic obstacles has become a nationally recognized pianist and composer of ragtime music. A lover and performer of the music of Scott Joplin and his contemporaries (which highlight the African American Diaspora of the late 19th and early 20th centuries), he also has a delightful opus of his own syncopated compositions, which continue and advance those monumental traditions of classic ragtime into the 21st century.
