James Reese Europe was born in Mobile, Alabama in 1880. Although he only lived to age 39, he became an accomplished orchestra conductor, band leader, and a successful composer of popular songs, marches, and dance music. He was a key figure in the evolution of orchestral ragtime into jazz. Some of Europe’s works are still performed today by ragtime pianists and military bands. Following a concert at Carnegie Hall on March 11, 1914, the New York “Evening Post” described Europe as “one of the most remarkable of men, not only of his race, but in the music world of this country.”
James Reese Europe was an effective champion of African-American musicians and performers in all idioms, and helped to gain acceptance for them in the USA and abroad. This collection of sheet music, “The Music of James Reese Europe“, is important because the works within it show Europe’s skill, imagination and versatility in his composing. It is a valuable resource for early pop, ragtime and dance music.

Valentine’s Day is only a few weeks away! Have you chosen your gig list, or the songs you will sing for your sweetie? Stanton’s Sheet Music has a selection of sheet music and books of love songs to meet your needs.

The song “Auld Lang Syne” comes from Scotland. The song is very old, collected by Robert Burns – by his own account – though some of the poem may well have been composed by him. The words “auld lang syne” translate rougly to “long, long ago,” and “for auld lang syne” means “for the sake of old times.”
Do you think you know the words? Are you sure? Stanton’s has the sheet music for this song. It is also included in several Christmas books of sheet music: Holiday Hits, Ultimate Christmas, and Essential Songs Christmas.
