Product Description

Amazon.com

Since a young David Grisman joined a newly discovered Doc Watson on the stage of Gerde's Folk City in 1962, the two have made indelible marks in the realm of acoustic music. Watson has attached his ripe vocals and fleet flatpicked guitar to traditional, old-time, and bluegrass; Grisman has blended a variety of traditional styles to form a progressive one. This cozy, comfortable record culls 14 songs recorded at an assortment of relaxed, informal, after-dinner sessions at Grisman's studio. As it moves from Jimmie Rodgers to Bill Monroe to jazz standards to traditional blues to rippling fiddle tunes, the record beautifully illustrates where the common ground lies. Most of all, the album exudes a passion and respect for the songs at hand; the superb picking (whether brisk or leisurely) is merely gravy. --Marc Greilsamer

This is a wonderful CD. I am a long time Doc Watson fan and this has some of his best playing. David Grisman is outstanding. The two blend well with complexity and clear picking. It is an album by two masters.

I saw these two geniuses at Town Hall in New York last month, and of course they had me on the edge of my seat, in awe, the whole 3 hours. I knew it would be an incredible show, but I didn't realize just how incredible. This cd doesn't quite capture the atmosphere of a thousand satisfied customers whooping it up at the end of each song, and Doc Watson grinning ear to ear, or David Grisman's unbelievably relaxed attitude while playing even the most complicated, extended soloes. But that's stuff you have to see. This cd is fantastic. The atmosphere's like at a coffeehouse or something, where the audience is there, but silent, and the musicians are just a few feet away. It's just the two of them (with an occasional third man, Jackson, on guitar) trading soloes the whole way, with a mostly traditional bluegrass sound, except for on Summertime, the old Gershwin jazz tune, which people shouted for at the concert. I wish they'd release a lot more of these two.

I just bought this CD and it is absolutely fantastic, beautiful clean picking that runs sweet and deep. I've seen both these guys separately in concert, and this cd represents the combination of two absolute geniuses as my imagination can hardly touch. It is heaven listening to these songs.

Where ya been all my life, David Grisman? I've always loved folk / traditional / blues music, but _Shady Grove_ has changed my life over the last few years. This album has much good in common with that one. Time-tested tunes played with companionable wit and confidence. As an amateur musician, I find this stuff inspiring. Highly recommended for folk addicts, 'grassers, Grateful Dead relationship-network completists, fretted-instrument fetishists.

This is a wonderful album. The mastery is always at the service of the music, but most of all, these guys are enjoying each other's company and having fun. Because of their extraordinary talent and taste, when they have fun, the listeners are in for a delight, a rare treat.

If you like guitar and mandolin, you will love this CD. The purity of the music with these artists is such a pleasure to listen to. There's no backup instruments, just the enjoyment of listening as two great talents show their skill and love of music.

Outstanding collaboration between two giants (including a few close friends). Doc and Dawg fit together beautifully, complementing each other smoothly.

The CD has more personality than I'd hoped for. Often, studio albums from essentially live performers can feel dry and subdued. But both Doc and Dawg come across as warm and personable as in their live gigs, and their rapport makes this an excellent musical union.

Go to tela dot sugarmeg dot org and look for Doc (or David) and you'll find dozens and dozens of live gigs showing their tremedous musical ranges as well as their wonderful connection with their audiences.

I love this CD. I am not all that familiar with Doc Watson, I love his playing and singing on this but cannot compare it to other recordings. David Grismans playing is great, of course. But best of all, the songs are all wonderful choices, all showing a unique flavor.
