“for non-Montrealers the Ratchet Orchestra came as a revelation”

Stuart Broomer, Music Works – Winter 2011

“This set might have been my favorite of the fest, it was certainly the most focused and successful.”

┬áBruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery – June 2nd, 2011

.

The Orchestra recording at Hotel2Tango

.

.

To me large bands can resemble sports teams or worse, armies.
I want Ratchet to sound more like a party of typing monkeys.

.

Another Sun Ra tune: “EL IS ASOUND OF JOY”

.

….and “PLANET EARTH” from the Sunology Suite featuring Guido Del Fabbro

.

The Ratchet orchestra was formed by Nicolas Caloia in ther early 90’s.

.

Here is a track from 1997: “LEFT”

.

and one from 1994: “V.P.R.”
