Following the Rascals acclaimed first CD ‘Out Of Nowhere’ (1996), this new CD reflects a group awareness of a whole century of jazz rather than a hard edged New Orleans approach. Although the colours and nuances of the 20s remain, the group is free to explore and improvise over the whole jazz spectrum. The musicians all share a strong knowledge and empathy with early jazz coupled with the ability and verve to play through all genres. The Hoodangers’ formidable Chris Turner and Eugene Ball are joined by The Red Onions John Scurry, Howard Cairns and winner of the 2001 Australia Council Don Banks Music Award, Allan Brown and play music from Monk Ornette, King Oliver and themselves.

east st. louis
sounds as strange to me
as east st. kilda
to an adolescent

in new york
add toodleoo
and we are out there
could be scott,
zelda, the great gatsby
but we hear duke in the jungle
