Ruby, Greg and the Rhythm Runners, Syncopated Classic
In 1924, Frank D. Waldron, Seattle jazz musician, composer and mentor to jazz greats Quincy Jones and Buddy Catlett, self-published nine original compositions under the guise of a saxophone tutorial book called “Frank D. Waldron’s Syncopated Classic.” Virtually lost to time, these rare, never-before recorded compositions have been unearthed and given new life by renowned, modern-day, Prohibition-Era jazz all-stars Greg Ruby and The Rhythm Runners. Ruby is a renowned Seattle based guitarist fluent in all things Django as well as many other diverse styles of vintage jazz. Guesting on this album is master mandolinist Mike Marshall.
