The Mississippi Rag

Lacunae: Vol. 8 no. 12, Vol. 13 no. 10.

The Mississippi Rag was the most successful magazine devoted to traditional jazz and ragtime and it featured not only historical articles but provided an important benefit in spotlighting up-and-coming artists. Scholarly articles and reviews on ragtime became a staple in the Rag and ragtime originators like Eubie Blake and popular performers like Max Morath were prominently featured.”
