Scrape is a seventeen-member string orchestra, along with harp and guitar, that performs the forward-looking music of composer Jim Knapp. Made up of top Seattle performers from the worlds of classical, jazz, and improvised music, they perform here ten Knapp originals along with a composition by guitarist Bill Frisell. Originally from Chicago, Knapp received his BA and MA in Music Composition from the University of Illinois. He moved to Seattle in the early ’70s where he developed & chaired the Jazz Program at the Cornish College of the Arts for 35 years and founded the Composers and Improvisers Orchestra and the Jim Knapp Orchestra.

Scrape performs in celebration of their new release this week as part of the Cornish Music Series.
