AllMusic Review by

As the title suggests, ASV/Living Era's Spirit of Ragtime collects sassy ragtime songs like Scott Joplin's "The Entertainer," Art Tatum's "Tiger Rag," Louis Armstrong's "Weather Bird Rag," Fred Van Eps' "Ragtime Oriole" and Jelly Roll Morton's "Pearls." Standards like "Maple Leaf Rag" and performances from Luckey Roberts, Sidney Bechet and Fats Waller capture ragtime's buoyant spirit.
