Tiger Street Rag

A combination of two of the great New Orleans Jazz classics, 12th Street Rag and Tiger Rag.

Tiger Rag was written and recorded in 1917 and recorded as a collaboration piece by the members of the Original Dixieland Jass Band, Nick LaRocca, Eddie Edwards, Henry Ragas, Tony Sbarbaro, and Larry Shields.  It is the most performed and most recorded jazz standard of all time with versions by Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, The Mills Brothers, Kenny Ball, Acker Bilk, Glenn Miller, Billie Holiday, Billy Cotton and Django Reinhardt to name but a few.

12th Street Rag was composed by Euday L. Bowman in 1897.  Bowman ran away from home at age 11 and ended up in Kansas.  While out walking one day, a friend of his known only as "Raggedy Ed" advised Bowman that he was going to open a pawn shop on 12th Street, the street they were walking along.  Bowman is alleged to have replied, "If you get rich on those three balls, I'll write a piece on three notes to make myself rich".  15 years later, 12th Street Rag came into existence and became one of the most famous and best-selling rags of the ragtime era.  The tune was recorded most famously by the Benny Moten band in the 1930s but has also been used in the cinema in 1919 in the film short "A Day's Pleasure" by Charlie Chaplin.  More recently, a ukulele version has been featured as background music on the TV series SpongeBob SquarePants.

This arrangement has an optional Piccolo Trumpet part to replace the 1st cornet part, should you want to have some fun.
