Troubadour Rag, a late Scott composition, marks the transition from ragtime to jazz. A happy no-nonsense that piece that gets straight down to brass tacks without an introduction. It has an AABBACCDD form, the dotted A-strain representing the new age is very catchy, a real ear worm whilst the other flowing strains are pure classic ragtime.
The cover of the original sheet music is an odd composition comprising two panels; the left panel has a woodcut of an Elizabethan troubadour playing to an empty balcony and the right one has a photograph of a pensive beauty looking directly into the camera. Exactly the same artwork had been used one year previously by the Quaker publisher John Stark for another Scott piece namely Rag Sentimental (1918).
Troubadour Rag was published by Stark Music Co, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
