James Scott : Grace and Beauty (A Classy Rag) - sheet music, midi & mp3

James Scott (1885-1938) was 18 years younger than Scott Joplin, but the two men met from time to time, and Joplin introduced James Scott to his own publisher: John Stillwell Stark. Scott went on to become a successful ragtime composer creating works like the Frogs Legs Rag in 1906 and this one "Grace and Beauty" in 1909. The work is also referenced on a tombstone erected at Scott's grave by the James Scott Memorial Society. The inscription reads "The Grace and Beauty of his music will live always".
