Edward Ratliff (Accordion, Trumpet)

EdwardRatliffEdward Ratliff is a New York City-based composer, bandleader and multi-instrumentalist (brass and accordion) who has been called “a wonderfully spunky and imperturbable trumpet player” (The New York Times) and “a fine musician who possesses a clever and crafty compositional pen” (AllAboutJazz.com).  Edward has led his bands at festivals and clubs in Europe and Asia and throughout New York City. His music is also heard in shows on HBO, Nickelodeon, the Discovery Channel, ABC Family, MTV, VH1 and more — everything from a biography of Dostoyevsky to “Real Sex Xtra” and “Girls Gone Wild.” Edward is also a filmmaker and is on the faculty of the International Center of Photography in New York, co-teaching (with photographer Anja Hitzenberger) a class called “Let Movies Inspire Your Photography.”
