RIP Jack Rose


We are sad to report the news that great Philadelphian guitarist, Dr. Ragtime aka Jack Rose has passed away of an apparent heart attack, at the age of 38.

Was happy to have met the Dr. several times, exchange good and humorous words, have a lot of drinks together and furthermore get to witness his beautiful playing most of all. The live music will be sorely missed. Rag/Raga was a fundamental idea we shared.

Ive read that he did complete another record recently, supposedly the answer to Kensington Blues, one of his classics. Hope to be able to hear that in the world in his ghost.

My condolences go out to the Rose family and friends.
