Charlie's initial interest in jazz came from listening to his father's record collection.
In the early sixties he joined up with Kate Ross, under the management of Warren Ross, to recreate ragtime and traditional jazz music.
Charlie was a graduate from the University of Michigan with an M.A. in fine arts. Upon completion of his college degrees he enlisted in the U.S. Army, served three years, returned home, and began playing piano professionally around the Ann Arbour, Detroit, Toledo area.
On December 16, 2003, a minor planet was discovered by the Catalina Sky Survey and named for him: 90397 Rasch (2003 YW4).
