about

The world lost Scott Joplin in April of 1917, but just a few weeks earlier it heard the first "jazz" recordings. The music of Dan Levinson and his Canary Cottage Dance Orchestra is an infectious blend of ragtime and jazz, sometimes referred to as "rag-a-jazz." "Steppin' Around" is the successor to "Crinoline Days", released two years earlier. Dan Levinson and his Canary Cottage Dance Orchestra emulate the sound of a dance band that one might hear in a swanky music club - in 1917. Rather than being a re-creation, however, "Steppin' Around" features Dan Levinson's new arrangements of popular songs from the Golden Age of Tin Pan Alley, including spirited fox-trots, tender waltzes, brisk one-steps, and dreamy, sentimental ballads.
