Alan Gresty / Brian White Ragtimers
The Alan Gresty & Brian White's Ragtimers are a band that was originally formed to pay tribute to the great cornetist, Muggsy Spanier. Their interpretation of his music led to them recording three volumes of ‘Muggsy Remembered' for the New Orleans based ‘Jazzology' label. The repertoire of the band has now been extended to include other material from the Golden Age of Dixieland. The recording ‘The Bobcats Recaptured' is a celebration of the music of the Bob Crosby Bobcats. Their latest offering ‘Muted Trumpet, Slide Trombone' is a CD's worth of the original compositions demonstrating that they can create as well as recreate. The band's international reputation led to appearances at prestigious jazz festivals, in Europe and the United States, also, to Radio and Television appearances on both sides to the Atlantic. The combination of professional presentation and superb music makes this band irresistible.
