Yes, I use Joplin's Easy Winners, Solace and Pineapple Rag among others. Great tunes which make me feel happy on stage which helps communicate that feeling to my audiences.

As for Bobby Baxter, he is still around (he'll be 84 this year) performing close-up many nights a week in New York City and still going strong. Back in 1947, I believe, he was on Ed Sullivan and did a great job performing comedy magic. For a good part of his life he performed mostly comedy magic but also developed incredible skill at back palming (having taught Jeff Sheridan) and thimble manipulation among other things. He did tour with Richardi several times, worked on many cruise ships and for private parties. He is also very strong with close-up magic having decided to focus on this in his later years.

He was one of my major influences not only in magic but in my personal life and I owe much of my success to him. Thank you Bobby!
