"... there's just one kind of music sweet and it has come to stay....
Lazy blues (sound so melancholy)
Crazy blues (bound to make you jolly)...
Take a good old tune of blues
And get on your dancing shoes..."
-- "Oh! Those Blues! Lazy Blues, Crazy Blues," lyrics by Isadore Murphy, copyright 4/3/1916

Not what I would call 'blues' - More Ragtime to my venerable ear . Worth a listen though !

They're blues. Use of ragtime style was routine on blues material, including among first-generation rural blues musicians from John Hurt to Elizabeth Cotten and beyond.
