Album Notes
"Stuffed Animal Baseball" is the follow-up record to The Renegades' 2004 release, "Doppler Olympics". This record contains some previously unreleased tracks from the original "Doppler Olympics" sessions, as well as material from their more recent repetoire.

The band is now in the form of a trio with Paul Mutzabaugh (keyboards & compositions), Frank Alongi (drums), and Jon Wegge (basses). However, this record showcases the talents of four additional players, namely: Neal Alger (guitar), Chris Clemente (bass), Bryan Murray (tenor saxophone), and Matt Ross (guitar). The album was engineered by our good friend Alex Hall at Long Division Studios in Chicago. Many thanks to him for his patience and expertise during this recording project.

The material on "Stuffed Animal Baseball" is that of technically challenging jazz-fusion -- with focus on improvisation, odd-time signatures, electric sounds/effects and intricate arrangements. However, it is our attempt that this record have something to offer for both musicians and non-musicians alike. Click on the links to the tunes to check it out for yourself. Tracks 1, 4, and 7 are pretty in-your-face. Tracks 5 and 8 are very calm. Tracks 2, 3, and 6 are somewhere in between. Hopefully, there will be something for you to enjoy.

Fabulous blend! Rare Stare is quickly becoming one of my favorites


Killer riffs over emotional chords! There's no better way to describe this album. The tunes range from in-your-face rock to mellow jams. If the final cut, "Rare Stare," was created 30+ years ago, you would've heard it on Pink Floyd's greatest masterpiece "The Dark Side of the Moon." It's that good!

If you like METRO, you'll love these guys.
Not your usual smooth jazz offering. In fact, not smooth at all, but lyrical. It's sort of in the progressive jazz vein, but not over the top. If you like METRO, you'll be digging THE RENEGADES as well.
