The Present Day Composer #34:
Christmas Week Edition
Joseph Lamb (1887-1960)
Though the vast majority of his work was composed prior to 1920, and though he long outlived such contemporaries as Scott Joplin, James Reese Europe and James Scott, Joseph Lamb did not record any of his compositions until August of 1959; a little more than one year before his passing at the age of 72.
The results were issued as an LP on the Folkways label, A Study in Classic Ragtime, and it is our offering today.
