Joakim Stenshäll (a.k.a. Jake Stonehell) singing "A Drunkard's Ode"", a 19th century ballade to which he had written the music. Dressed in his stage clothes, Joakim played the role of a ragtime professor. He played "Pastime Rag nr. 3" (Artie Matthews) and "King Porter Stomp" (Jelly Roll Morton). At Gustaf von Plomgren's place he continued with two of his own compositions, "Nygatan Stomp" and the newly composed "Camel Face Rag". He also tried his hand at two more Jelly Roll Morton pieces, "Jelly Roll Blues" and "Kansas City Stomp".
