Frederick's performance of this Cole Porter Medley is marvelous. Absolutely marvelous!
The tunes are: What Is This Thing Called Love? (1930) Begin the Beguine (1935) Night and Day (1932) Buffoon (1932, but by Zez Confrey)
Such a great time we all had at the West Coast Ragtime Festival this year. I sure hope you can come and enjoy the fun next year!
This video is an example of the exciting music we enjoyed on the last evening of the festival during the dinner party on Sunday night 11-18-07. There were several great piano performers enjoying the occasion and entertaining the crowd until the wee hours of the morning. Like a bunch of kids, we just couldn't drag ourselves away from the fun just to go to bed.
