Description

Singer Karin Krog and pianist Morten Gunnar Larsen are two of Norway's most acclaimed jazz musicians with international reputations; Karin most famously for her work with John Surman and their albums on ECM, and Morten for his exuberance as a practitioner of ragtime piano with a modern twist. Inspired by the pioneers of early jazz piano, Morten is a disciple and acknowledge authority on the work of legendary ragtime pianist and lyricist, Eubie Blake.

'In a Rag Bag' features a programme of ragtime compositions ranging from early composers such as Scott Joplin, Bix Beiderbecke and Fats Waller, through to contemporary composers as Leiber & Stoller and Dave Frishberg. Also included is a surprise composition from John Surman that references the style of Eubie Blake.

Personnel: Karin Krog (vocals), Morton Gunnar Larsen (piano)
