       and bars of St. Louis to the music mills of Tin Pan Alley 
       as he introduced a syncopated, lively style to classical 
       piano. Joplin's effect on popular music is closely 
       identified with his era and the role of African Americans 
       on the music scene of the United States"--Provided by
