As mentioned above, Harlem Rag was the first published instrumental rag by an African American composer. This Two Step version, the first of a total of 4 known versions, was arranged by D.S. DeLisle and differs substantially from later versions. It is a lively enough item and a joy to play. Its form is ABCDA whereby the A-sections are in the key of C, the other sections being in G.
Harlem Rag - Two Step was published by Robert De Yong & Co., St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 90 crotchets/min. is suggested.
