You said Dixieland before ragtime. We are speaking about the 1904 World's
Fair. Mississippi Rag (W. H. Krell) was copyrighted in 1897. Joplin
copyrighted Maple Leaf Rag in 1899.
Bolden's band was reputed to be pkaying the music before 1904.

Note: in the above I have assumed that by Dixieland you mean jazz music, not
just the funny style played by white folk in striped shirts with garters on
the sleeve and derby hats.

This is mainly for the cornet players on the list...there's a mention of
Dixieland being played at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair...oops! I don't
THINK so...also the writer of the article doesn't know how to spell
CORNET....(CORONET), and Dixieland before Ragtime??
This whole thing started when I forwarded the story to the TPIN that Jim
Cullum wrote about cornets/lamps...
Where would we all be with out GOOGLE???
