Johnson, James P. – “Parlor Piano Solos From Rare Piano Rolls ” – [Biograph Records]

Piano rolls produced by Johnson from 1917-1921 and then
played on a Steinway upright player piano and recorded in 1970.
Great tunes that give a glimpse of the vituosity of the musician and
the fine detail and speed which were possible with these
mechanical devices.

Johnson lived from 1894 to 1955 and influenced Fats Waller and George Gershwin.
