Ragan Whiteside continues to release Billboard chart scoring music. A streak that began in 2019 continues, as we reach the second half of 2020. While the pandemic has restricted performance opportunities, it hasn’t stopped the creative process. Following her Top 15 redeniton of the Little River Band’s Reminiscing, Ragan is back with JJ's Strut (Randis Music). Now I don’t know who JJ is, but when you hear this tune JJ just may be you. The production team of Dennis Johnson & Bob Baldwin create another gem for Ragan to demonstrate why she’s one of the best musicians in contemporary Jazz to pick up a flute. Willie Bradley adds his trumpet on what will be in this Programmers opinion another Billboard chart winner for Ragan Whiteside. You can hear JJ's Strut and other Ragan Whiteside hits on Jazz 91.9 WCLK.
David C. Linton is Jazz 91.9 WCLK Program Director and host of Serenade To The City, heard Monday-Friday at 10pm.
