Butch Thompson is a terrific pianist and clarinetist in the field of stride and early jazz. You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who can tackle the difficult repertoire of Jelly Roll Morton and make it sound so effortless. I have many of Thompson's recordings and admire the man greatly. Unfortunately, this foray into the "classic" ragtime of Scott Joplin is a rare misfire for Mr. Thompson. He plays with a buoyancy that I find appealing, but unfortunately, he misses too many notes in the process.
