Album Notes
The Ragged Blade Band's been around for about six years; has played in its hometown of St. Louis and toured regionally to places such as Chicago, Minneapolis and Duluth, MN; Tulsa, Rolla and Columbia, MO; Iowa City and Des Moines, IA. The band plays many styles, focuses on blues, jazz, and ragtime, with some rock, country, pop and a ballad here and there.

Let's take a CD tour. All the music is written and arranged by bandleader Jerry Rabushka unless otherwise indicated.

Uptown Sophisticate: a big band arrangement, a vocalist who's ready for a night on the town, trumpets, saxes, even something called a frumpet, it's a great start-off to your evening.

No Luck at Home: old school country song about a guy who wins at the gambling table but loses at love. Featuring awesome young fiddler Roger Netherton.

Ballin' the Jack: the famous song by Chris Smith and Jim Burris... we do it based on the original sheet music, here's your chance to hear the rest of the song.

Waste Not Want Not: film noir jazz, we brought out the old church gospel organ, plus the best bass line you'll hear all day! Should he give his heart away, or will waste not want not win the game?

Love is a Word: It's addicting! who says you can't put a clarinet on a country/western song? Listen to the drums limping along like an old horse. And old-style tear jerker, you won't even need the record player to hear the scratch.

What Kind of Love: Our ballad of the evening, with some gorgeous sax & clarinet duos, and a vocalist who feels it!

Let Me Be Your Cowboy: It's more western than country, here's a yarn about the guy who loves the girl who loves some other guy. Listen to the snare!

Attention: "from that special kind of man!" What's going on here? Some people like their lovin' a bit differently. We got a small orchestra for this one, with flute, viola, guitar, a few horns, and more! Starts off Spanish, then cruises into some sexy jazz.

Memphis Blues: not the usual lyrics for this very early blues song. Sax and clarinet solos, raggy blues on the piano, and a singer who means everything she says. When she asks for forty dollars down, she usually gets it!
