JOE NUTMAN - Troublesome Ivories

CD / Product Number: PKCD402

Joe Nutman is possibly the best pianist you've never heard of! He was classically trained in the 1950s and '60s when, of course, ragtime was not part of the classical music curriculum, being still somewhat unacceptable perhaps due to its associations with the bordellos of the early 20th century. In more recent years Joe has studied ragtime piano and on this CD he has produced some lovely interpretations of several very well-known rags as well as some ... [MORE]

RUTH and the JAZZMATES - Sentimental Journey

CD / Product Number: PKCD388
