Composer. He was a self-taught piano player regarded as one of the best composers of classic ragtime music. Using great diversity, his contributions to ragtime music literature surpassed ragtime's usual four-measure phrase structure. His many scores which are still in publication to date, included "Ethiopia Rag" (1909), "Champagne Rag" (1910), "American Beauty Rag" (1913), "Ragtime Nightingale" (1915), "The Top Liner Rag" (1916) and "Bohemia Rag" (1919). He died of a heart attack. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
