Throughout the recent ragtime revolution, one performer-Dave Jasen- has consistently discovered and recorded obscure rags and rediscovered rarely-heard ones.

In This, Dave's latest album, he demonstrates his thoroughness in absorbing the entire spectrum of rags-from folk to novelty- recording seven rags for the first time ever in addition to creating two refreshing and challenging rags of his own.

His dedication to ragtime is universally recognized, and he has recorded, written about and played this fascinating music for more than a quarter of a century!

Among his many accomplishments is the award winning series of great ragtime reissues created for RBF, containing the best and most unusual of recorded ragtime performances. He also wrote the definitive discography, RECORDED RAGTIME (Archon), which is landmark in original record research. With authority Trebor Jay Tichenor, he has written the most comprehensive book about this subject, RAGTIME: AN ORIGINAL AMERICAN MUSIC (Seaberry Press).

This gathering of Dave's recent musical thoughts gives us rags hitherto never previously recorded (Sweet And Tender, Champagne Rag, Too Much Raspberry), as well as little-recorded works of Scott Joplin (Fig Leaf Rag) and James Scott (Ophelia Rag). The Usual-for Dave Jasen- is decidedly unusual for the rest of us and these recordings reveal yet another side of Dave's inspiration.
