Personal Quote:

'Alexander's Ragtime Band' has to be considered the keystone work of a whole new trend in American music. Those infectious lyrics which announced the arrival of jazz were not only spread across our entire continent, but were rapidly exported across the Atlantic, to let all of Europe in on what was happening.

Trivia:

Author, humorist, playwright and television writer/producer and son of Jacob Wilk.
