Look at 'em shufflin', shufflin' down Ramblin' scramblin' and headin' for town Hustlin' bustlin' and buzzin' around Happily awaiting at the station Look at the train the number seven-oh-nine Huffin' and puffin' and arrivin' on time Who do you think's about to arrive The band they call the Sugarfoot Five They're gonna play that Muskrat Ramble too The way you never ever heard it played Get ready for the big parade All together now One and two C'mon and join the happy throng Feel the beat of that ramblin' scramblin' muskrat song C'mon and ramble along Now look at 'em shufflin' a'shufflin down Look at the band paradin' all over town Look at the happiness goin' around Everybody's up and celebratin' Look at the drummer entertaining the gang Clingin' and clangin' with a bing and a bang Changin' the town from dead to alive The band they call the Sugarfoot Five They're gonna play that Muskrat Ramble too The way you never ever heard it played Get ready for the big parade All together now One and two C'mon and join the happy throng Feel the beat of that hustlin' bustlin' muskrat song C'mon and ramble along

Evan Arntzen, renowned multi-reedist, vocalist and bandleader, presents his third album as a bandleader, Countermelody. This uplifting new release is a celebration of the interplay, collective improvisation and soulful counterpoint that played such a big role in Black American Music emanating from New Orleans in the first half of the 20th century. During a time when convening is all but impossible, Countermelody brings the gaiety of live music to the recorded realm.

Countermelody brings early-jazz-exuberance to an eager present in a release which author and Louis Armstrong historian, Ricky Riccardi, calls “the very definition of timeless” in the album’s liner notes. Arntzen’s Dot Time Records debut features many of his own astounding arrangements of early New Orleans and Chicago jazz compositions written by such luminaries as Kid Ory, King Oliver, Sidney Bechet and Bennie Moten. The release also features wonderfully innovative compositions by Arntzen, Halloran and Kellso. Aside from thirteen hi-fidelity tracks, listeners will also be treated to tracks that were recorded to wax cylinder, a medium that actually predates when much of this music was composed.
