As warrants its title and as can be discerned on the front cover of the original sheet music, Ragtime Oriole
is indeed a happy, burbling rag with decidedly avian strains in AABBACCDDA form. For my taste it represents one of the best Scott rags - highly enjoyable for performers and audiences alike!
Not being terribly up on my feathered zoology I cannot make out whether the illustrated little crochet emitting creature is an Old World bird of the family Oriolidae many of which have brightly coloured plumage or whether it is a New World bird of the genus Icterus of which everybody knows that it is also similarly coloured and related to the grackles. Now grackles ..... oh, forget it!
