Check out this wonderful poem titled America's Beautiful written by my dear friend Mary Ciraso, dedicated to those who lost their lives in the New York City World Trade Center also the people of America and the whole world.
THE MUSIC TREE
By Richie O.
This site is dedicated to all of the musicians of the 20th century who made Pop music what it is today. Who knows? Maybe if it wasn't for Ragtime, or Swing we wouldn't be hearing the styles of music as we know today. As a Rock musician, myself, always wondered if there were any link between Rock'N'Roll and Rags or Dixieland Jazz. Well I did a little reseach and I think I found that all of the Pop music of the 20th century has one thing in common.
So link in and check it out!!!
If you would like to download the soundtracks to this site to save on your computer, I supplied some download links for MIDI files
And of course one I wrote myself….
Listen to a history of early recordings from 1902-1911
