Alexander's Ragtime Band" is a song by Irving Berlin. It was his first major hit, in 1911. It might be regarded as a sequel to "Alexander and His Clarinet," which Berlin wrote with Ted Snyder in 1910. The earlier song is mostly concerned with a reconciliation between Alexander Adams and Eliza Johnson, but also highlights Alexander's novel musical style.

The David Gordon trio have taken on an a gigantic task with the music of Alexander Scriabin and completely "nailed it". The album, a generous seventy five minutes in length features mostly tracks either composed or influenced by Scriabin plus others by such diverse hand's s as Irving Berlin, Claude Debussy and . Nearly all the arrangements are by David Gordon himself. These pieces are not "jazzed up" versions of the classics, far from it, they take a completely fresh look at the music and interpret it in a strong and modernistic jazz tradition

Piano virtuoso David Gordon’s ‘Alexander Scriabin's Ragtime Band’ is a celebration of the great Russian composer’s music seen through a kaleidoscope of jazz, Latin, and other influences. The title comes from his Trio’s 2015 album which coincided with the hundredth anniversary of Scriabin's death and, more or less, the birth of jazz in New Orleans. It was chosen as Mojo’s Jazz CD of 2016: ‘David Gordon is a musician of dazzling range.

Alexander Scriabin’s Ragtime Band is a radical departure in the output of this remarkable trio, who were inspired by the Russian pianist/composer genius to produce exquisite jazz interpretations of Scriabin's miniatures – his billets-doux to eternity – seen through the prism of popular music of the time. Across-the-board critical praise includes Norwegian magazine Stereopluss. no calling it ‘one of the finest trio records I have heard in a very long time’. The David Gordon Trio have appeared on BBC Radio 3, at King’s Place, and Copenhagen’s Jazzhouse  . David Gordon (piano). Alec Dankworth (double bass). Paul Cavaciuti (drums).
