Album Notes
Ragstretch takes its name from its members’ love of the traditional forms of New Orleans and Ragtime music, but presents a unique and original sound from a wide variety of influences. The versatility of the group is unparalleled, with band members drawing on all forms of jazz, stretching from Trad Jazz through Blues, Swing and beyond.

This exciting international ensemble features: Denmark-based Chris Tanner on clarinet/vocals, Germany-based Australian trombonist Shannon Barnett and young Swedish talent Björn Ingelstam on trumpet and vocals.

With four band members now based in New York, including the hard-swinging rhythm section of Craig Fermanis (The Band Who Knew Too Much, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra) on guitar, Sam Anning on double bass (Kenny Werner, Ari Hoenig, Cyrille Aimee) and Rajiv Jayaweera on drums (Cyrille Aimee, Jakob Dinesen), this unbeatable combination of Scandinavians and Aussies will excite your every nerve, soothe your soul and take you on a journey through the music of some of the jazz greats, as presented by a fresh new generation of virtuoso musicians.

This album was recorded in Copenhagen, Denmark on 2nd August, 2013 at 'The Village' Studios
