Dana,

The link you posted is a recording of one of our board regular posters and a highly talented Ragtime virtuoso and former DELTA QUEEN Steamboatin' Director, Tom "Jazzou" Jones. He is a natural born talent at the steam calliope, as this recording (by our webmaster Franz Neumeier) will clearly attest to!

I met "Jazzou" aboard the DELTA QUEEN in 1979 at the keyboard of the calliope, where I made a cassette recording of him in full performance. It is one of many I have of him performing and one of the most cherished in my personal collection.
