The Ragging of Time

Percy Pursglove trumpet
Alex Ward clarinet
Robert Jarvis trombone
Simon H. Fell double bass
Paul Hession drumset

The Ragging of Time celebrates 100 years of jazz history in a dizzying musical kaleidoscope that spirals from New Orleans to contemporary free jazz, taking in everything that lies between. In a work originally commissioned by the Marsden Jazz Festival, Simon Fell constructs time-tunnels between earlier periods in the history of jazz and the most recent developments in improvisation and instrumental abstraction. For Time Unwrapped, he presents a new quintet version of this dazzling jazz panorama.

‘The music draws jazz, free improvisation and post-serial composition into the same gravitational field, where they hybridise and mutate.’ The Wire
‘Simon is such a fantastic player and composer… he’s done this amazing thing where he has actually made the music travel in time. To hear it is a very physically exciting experience.’ Ian McMillan, BBC Radio 3
