ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jeremy Ragsdale grew up surrounded by music in Annapolis, Maryland. He began studying classical piano at age 7, was trained in jazz by his father, and began to play the piano professionally by the age of 12. By the time he went to college, he had already performed vocally with various ensembles at Carnegie Hall and recorded a CD at Sony Music Studios in Los Angeles. Singing was now his main focus.

After briefly studying Classical performance at New England Conservatory, Ragsdale transferred to Berklee College of Music. Now a graduate of Berklee, he has studied, performed, and/or recorded with many well-known and highly experienced musicians such as Patti Austin, Kevin Mahogany, Lalah Hathaway, Walter Beasley, Hiromi, Phil Wilson, Kim Nazarian and Peter Eldridge of the New York Voices, and Susan Tedeschi.

As a former member of Jazz Vocal Quartet SYNCOPATION, Ragsdale recently released his first widely distributed album, entitled "Of Blue", with Geneon Entertainment. The group has toured Japan numerous times, and has appeared domestically at the Boston Globe Jazz & Blues Festival, Tri-C Jazz Fest and the 2004 and 2006 IAJE Conventions in New York City.

Jeremy Ragsdale is an adjunct professor of jazz vocal studies at Towson University.

Disappointed
A friend said I would enjoy this cd and gave me a copy. Band is on point, but vocals were very disappointing. Some of my favorite jazz standards were butchered. Maybe another genre would be better suited for this vocal style... just please leave jazz to the professionals.

Monster vocal chops, style, big band!
I enjoy this album LOTS. Jeremy is the real deal. His vocal chops, improvisation, and phrasing are off the charts. And the big band backing him up is all-powerful. He sings jazz and R&B with much soul and virtuosity. He also has a vulnerability in his tone that is appealing and inviting.

Incredible!
I first heard the samples on your website and thought instead of wasting your hosting bandwidth, I'd just buy the album. The horns and arrangements are killer and your vocal stylings put the cherry on top. I love the take on "Got to Get You Into My Life!" It's a refreshing take on a classic. Also, I think I heard a little Luther on "Giving You The Best." Overall, money well spent!

Raw, REAL Talent
I've had the fortunate experience of Jeremy's friendship for years. With that came the bonus of hearing his beautiful voice. Extreme versatility and adaptation to multiple genres of music. That in itself is a born gift. He is also phenomenal on the instrumentals. JSR is a compliment to jazz, and the music industry in it's entirety.
Great work Rags, I'm so proud of all you have accomplished. Oh, and I happen to love the CD. Fyi. ;)
