Midwest Record on Chris Washburne Rags & Roots:
“The bone man blows your mind as he blows your ears open by surrounding himself with a killer array of modern jazzbos who all pull in the same direction. Making classic rags modern and interspersing them with materiality this invites you to take a wild ride.”
