Featured are Cavanaugh on electric banjo, Bill Evans on saxophone, Mark Egan on bass, Tyson Rogers on keyboard, and Joel Rosenblatt on drums.
Ryan says that he likes working this way, recording music as he creates it, outside of the traditional album format.
“It is important to me to make new and exciting music with the banjo. I also want to release my ideas before they become old to me. There are no immediate plans for me to get a band together and play this material or to do a tour.”
Here is a piece of Back Country, showing how it mixes bluegrass banjo with jazz harmony and a contemporary jazz rhythm section.
Back Country is available from popular digital resellers, as is Cavanugh’s first single, Reuben’s Cube (Tribute to Earl Scruggs).
