My 85-year-old pneumatic player piano plays QRS roll CEL-102, a hand-played roll of Jo Ann Castle playing Chopsticks. "Hand-played" meaning she played the tune on a "marking piano" that drew lines on a paper roll as she played, and from that marked roll a master punched roll was made from which copies could be sold for pianos like mine to play. This differs from the majority of rolls, which were created by an arranger. A modern comparison would be like a live-captured MIDI sequence versus a programmed MIDI file. Jo Ann Castle is a famous ragtime, honky-tonk and boogie-woogie pianist. In the 1960s, she appeared regularly on The Lawrence Welk Show. Me growing up in the 1970s, I saw her plenty of times on Welk reruns, so she was one of my early exposures to ragtime music.
This is the first video of my pneumatic player piano in action at our new house. This song is iconic of the 1920s, though it didn't come about until 1927. Milton Ager wrote the music. Jack Yellen was the lyricist. The song is so popular, even The Beatles recorded a version of it! This roll bears the signature famed roll artist Pete Wendling, who left QRS in 1925 -- two years before this tune was composed. Thanks to YouTuber "ragtimist" for pointing out that post-1925 rolls with Wendling's signature printed on them may in fact be the work of J. Lawrence Cook. There are no dynamics marked on the roll; I'm just winging it as I go along, without really remembering how the arrangement goes. Most 88-note player-piano videos you'll find don't utilize the dynamics levers because the pianos have been electrified, so people don't sit at the controls while the rolls play. My piano has not been electrified, so I'm seated at the keyboard operating the foot pumps and using the dynamics levers and sustain button with my left hand. Sing along! Here are the lyrics (the roll begins with the chorus -- the verse where you can start singing is at 53 seconds): There she is! There she is! There's what keeps me up at night Oh, gee whiz! Oh, gee whiz! There's why I can't eat a bite Those flaming eyes! That flaming youth! Oh, mister! oh, sister! tell me the truth... Ain't she sweet? See her walking down the street Now I ask you very confidentially Ain't she sweet? Ain't she nice Look her over once ...

This is another song using the Nord C1 as a MIDI controller to play the piano. I hope to add MIDI to the Hammond E. If I can "pull it off" I can add realistic piano sounds to the Hammond. If not, I will have to save up for a very long time and get an Allen digital theater organ with MIDI capabilities. I don't see that happening for a while.

To find out the frontal plane QRS axis with ease I have come out with this axis finder. This is made up of two pieces of paper, the bigger one has a diagram of various limb leads showing the direction of their vector. The second piece is a semi-circle, with a black arrow drawn in the middle. The semi circle is fitted on to the bigger piece in a way that allows it to rotate freely. To determine the frontal plane QRS axis all you have to do is just cover all the leads showing positive deflection with the semi-circle. Then the arrow gives you the direction of the frontal plane QRS axis.

Here's our Baldwin upright player piano playing "Blue Eyed Sally", one of the very first piano rolls I ever bought for it. And do you know that after all these years and close to two thousand rolls later it is still one of the first ones I reach for when I want to hear the old girl play. She needs a little tweeking but I just haven't had the time to do it so I hope that you will enjoy this (maybe my only!) video offering of the piano. I've always liked the playing style of J. Russel Robinson ...
Here is Composer, Pianist and Arranger Zez Confrey and "Grieving for You" played on a 1920 QRS Piano Roll and a Lauter-Humana Player Piano.After WWI, Zez Confrey auditioned for the QRS Piano Roll Company, expressing that he felt he could make better arrangements of pop tunes than the other arrangers. QRS quickly agreed and signed him. He made about one hundred and twenty-seven rolls for QRS from 1918 to 1924. His arrangements were consistently tasteful and filled with inspiration.
Here is the King of Ragtime, Scott Joplin(1868?-1917) on a guaranteed Hand Played QRS-Connorized Record Roll, played on a Lauter-Humana Player Piano. The player piano's heyday lasted from 1900 to the Depression in the1930's. Affordable radios started becoming commonplace in 1927. In 1932, not a single player piano was shipped from the factories. Player pianos sounded much better than radio or the Edison mechanical phonographs of that era. Player pianos were expensive but families who had ...

QRS 1017 - You Can't Get Lovin' Where There Ain't Any Love - Fox Trot - Played by J. Russel Robinson on my 1912 Stroud Metrostyle-Themodist player piano. This song was co-written with the great WE Skidmore. I'm a BIG fan of J. Russel Robinson, in my opinion one of the hottest roll artists QRS had on staff. Once called "the white boy with colored fingers", Robinson was indeed a white musician, but you'd practically never know that listening to his rolls and his style is definitely "hot" and ...
