By drawing from the rich big band heritage of the legends of jazz and updating the sound and instrumentation for today, Chad Rager creates a "21st Century Groove".
This instrumental release for Strokeland Records was recorded live and features a big band approach that celebrates the traditional musical catalog of the big band, and at the same time reaches beyond it to funk and rock, giving all the tracks the "Chad Rager Groove" treatment.
Chad Rager leads the group and anchors the band from the drum chair. The Chad Rager Groove uses a five piece horn section (two trumpets, tenor sax, bari sax, trombone), plus keyboards (piano, organ), bass and of course drums.
Tower of Power fans will find a unique cover of "Squib Cakes", and southern rock fans will be surprised to hear the Allman Brothers' classic "Whipping Post".
Strokeland Records is excited to welcome the Chad Rager Groove to Strokeland Jazz.
