Flute with an instant appeal

I love the album title! The flute sounds FANTASTIC in this album, just the perfect balance of purity and jazziness – so easy on the ear! Charming and fresh music, with catchy beats to get you dancing. I like the cool ambience of BY THE MOONLIGHT, peppered with little trills in the low registers of the xylophone. The beat of LET’S DO THIS is reminiscent of old school garage music, given a modern twist with its slower tempo and instrumentation: the flute and muted trumpet sound great! SEE YOU AT THE GETDOWN and MYSTIC VIBRATION had me grooving throughout!

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!
