Chris Washburne fronts his exciting “Rags and Roots” band—from the recent album of the same name—in a celebration of a century of American music and the origins of jazz. Of that recording, Midwest Record says, “Making classic rags modern and interspersing them with materiality of Washburn’s making, this set colors outside the lines and invites you to take a wild ride along with it as the familiar gets turned on its head in a most delightful fashion. A stomping good time, leave your inhibitions at the door and check in for a good time.” All About Jazz adds, “Trombonist Chris Washburne takes a musical exploration back through time on Rags And Roots, revealing the connections and contributions of not only America, but Haiti, Cuba, Mexico, and Brazil, in the early development of jazz.”
