Victor Goines’ Roots of Ragtime
Saxophonist and clarinetist Victor Goines revisits the songbooks of Scott Joplin, Joseph Lamb, and James Scott, dubbed the “Big Three” of ragtime. A gifted composer and arranger with over 70 original compositions to his credit, Goines has been a member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra since 1993, always delivering his signature New Orleans-flavored aesthetic. Partly descended from marches by the likes of John Philip Sousa, but distinctive for its use of syncopated rhythms, ragtime enjoyed its peak popularity between 1895 and 1918. Goines and his ensemble will explore the development of ragtime and its subsequent influence on the evolution of jazz, exemplified by the music of Jelly Roll Morton. Joining Goines will be guitarist/banjoist James Chirillo, saxophonist/flutist/clarinetist Ted Nash, bassist Yasushi Nakamura, pianist Chris Pattishall, drummer Joe Saylor trombonist Chris Crenshaw, and trumpeters Marcus Printup and Kenny Rampton.
