ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ragan Whiteside, the flautist-singer who catches the ear like few in the world of contemporary jazz can, is making waves with her fourth studio album, Treblemaker.

A favorite of well-known stages such as Capital Jazz, Whiteside’s sound brings to mind the stylings of Najee and Dave Valentin. The preceding album, Quantum Drive, has received major airplay and acclaim by such publications as Jazz In M.E.E., and was described as “an enchanting and vibrant album” by Hans-Bernd Hülsmann of smooth-jazz.de. As its successor, Treblemaker promises a further expanse of Whiteside’s variety and style. Frank McComb, Kim Waters, Marion Meadows, and Tom Browne make their appearances on the album to lend their touch to a well-seasoned musical mix.

Whiteside is not one to shy away from shaking up expectations. In contemporary jazz, where there is always a thirst for fresh material, she steps up and delivers, both in studio recording and on live stage.

“Her tenacity makes her a force to be reckoned with. Mark my words!” said Bob Baldwin of her once, and this tenacity is obvious at every show and in every track. “We need new music!” the fans say, and Ragan Whiteside is always up to deliver exactly what they ask for.

Still a New Yorker at her core and in her every note, Ragan Whiteside brings no shortage of sound to shake up some perceptions of what a flute – and a jazz artist – can do.

SMOOTHJAZZ.COM REVIEW
With the release of her creatively named fourth album TREBLEMAKER, endlessly inventive flutist Ragan Whiteside continues to bring to contemporary urban jazz the kind of ultra-funky, richly improvisational vibes that greats like Najee and the late Dave Valentin did back in the genre’s early days. With her whimsical flute leading the way, she delivers a sizzling mix of infectious ballads, mystical mid-tempo cool and spirited dance romps with an all-star guest list that includes saxophonists Kim Waters and Marion Meadows, trumpeter Tom Browne, and keyboardists Frank McComb and Bob Baldwin. It’s called TREBLEMAKER, but you’ll want to turn up the bass to get fully into the groove!
