Chris Washburne’s Rags and Roots celebrates the release of their debut recording on ZOHO Records. Developed through the Catskill Jazz Factory and making it’s New York City debut, Rags and Roots is a bi-hemispheric ragtime revival, covering a century’s worth of compositions from New Orleans, New York, Haiti, Cuba, Mexico and Brazil. By reimagining ragtime and the roots of jazz, Washburne has created a path for new audiences to discover this quintessentially American music. This album, his second ZOHO release after the critically acclaimed Low Ridin’ of 2015, embraces and sounds out the remarkable cultural diversity that contributed to the emergence of jazz.
