One comment left on YouTube (link below) says “August 29th 2016 is the 100th anniversary of the death of J. Leubrie Hill, composer of “At The Ball, That’s All” (one of the most successful ragtime songwriters in the business).” An African-American musician, he wrote the song in 1913 for a show he wrote called “My Friend from Kentucky” which he produced and starred and which played in Harlem’s Lafayette Theatre. (https://www.loc.gov/item/ihas.200038843/ accessed 1st November 2016). 1913 was the height of tangomania – and the lyrics include a reference to “the tango jiggle”.”
