5.0 out of 5 stars Light breezy air and cheerfulness December 24, 2006
By J. Ross
Format:Audio CD
Playing Time - 65:39 -- Isn't it amazing that the original David Grisman Quintet formed three decades ago! Just like turning 30 is a milestone in one's life, a visionary band of that vintage has certainly solidified its musical maturity. Besides David Grisman, the other charter members were Todd Phillips, Darol Anger, Tony Rice and the late Joe Carroll. The list of alumni from the group reads like a who's who of bluegrass and acoustic innovators. The current band has bassist Jim Kerwin (with the group since 1985), flutist Matt Eakle (since 1989), guitarist Enrique Coria (1994) and drummer George Marsh (1985 for several years, then rejoining in 2005). It was Jerry Garcia who gave David Grisman the nickname of "Dawg" based on the initials in his full name. And, of course, his "groove" is the pleasurable and harmonious musical experience they create together.

Grisman's history as a musician goes back much further than just 30 years. Originally from Hackensack, N.Y., he began his professional career in bluegrass in the mid-1960s with Red Allen and the Kentuckians, Even Dozen Jug Band, and New York Ramblers. In 1967, he moved west to California to pursue other kinds of musical endeavors including Earth Opera, Great American Music Band, and Old and in the Way. He keeps pretty darn good company. And Grisman has probably done as much, if not more, for the mandolin in jazz than Bill Monroe did for the little 8-stringed instrument in bluegrass.

The David Grisman Quintet has always played their instrumental music with such extemporaneous buoyancy that we can't help but grin like a cheshire cat at its light breezy air and cheerfulness. This set is all new originals and is not a compilation that rests on the laurels of tunes previously released.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest! April 1, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have always loved Dawg's music and he was my initial inspiration to pick up a mandolin some 40 years ago. He never disappoints and surrounds himself with awesome sidemen. This album is a beautiful recreation of the DGQ's Latin "Dawganova" jazz era, minus Joe Craven. The blend of unusual rhythm structures with virtuoso breaks by Dawg, Enrique and Jim Kerwin's bowed bass grab you at first bite. We listened to this at least 6 times since we got it 2 days ago. Looking forward to enjoying it for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars I listen to this every day while travelling. January 21, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album's a great addition to any musically inclined person's library, and should be required for mandolinists. The players groove together perfectly, the tunes are a great and varied selection, and it's just a pleasure to listen to.
