Original Ragtimers

    Collectively, Bob Erdman (piano) and Phil Cartwright (banjo and vocal) have spent more years in jazz venues, restaurants, and bars than they want to admit.

    Those many years playing ragtime and jazz pay off in this eclectic collection of rags, rag songs, and early Morton.

    Their performances capture the intersection of ragtime and jazz and are a joyous celebration of that almost forgotten era of American music.
