Editorial Reviews

Revered as one of the most energetic and innovative mandolin players on the jamband/newgrass scene today, Emmit's inestimable talents (An Honest Tune) don't end with just the instruments that can be picked. Holding the wheel steady on acoustic and electric slide mandolin, acoustic and electric guitar and mandola, Long Road also showcases Emmitt's superlative storytelling and versatile vocal abilities.

With seven originals, including co-writes with John Cowan (Long Road) and Jim Lauderdale (I'm Alive), Emmitt saavily chose a few best-of-life-on-the-road songs, such as Supertramp's Take the Long Way Home, Marshall-Tucker Band's Take the Highway, and Van Morrison's Gypsy in my Soul. Long Road was co-produced by Emmitt and Compass Records co-founder Garry West.

Featuring: Drew Emmitt (Guitar, Mandolin, vocals), Tyler Grant (Acoustic Guitar), Chris Pandolfi (Banjo), Jeff Sipe (Drums), Steven Sandifer (Percussion), and Eric Thorin (Bass).

With Special Guests: Billy Nershi of The String Cheese Incident, Andy Hall of The Infamous Stringdusters, Stuart Duncan, Tim O'Brien, Alison Brown, Darrell Scott, John Cowan, and Reese Wynans.

Long Road - Compass Records

“Lord you know I’ve been so many places/At least I know I have a longer view”, sings Leftover Salmon lead singer and mandolin player Drew Emmitt over a rollicking mandolin lick on the title track of his third solo effort, Long Road. “I’ve been on the road since the 80’s – can you believe that? ...

Format: Audio CD
Drew Emmitt's solo work sounds, not surprisingly, a lot like Leftover Salmon. While Leftover Salmon convincingly mix, rock, country, bluegrass, cajun and a few other styles into a genre they call Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass, Emmitt's solo work on this album leans a bit more towards country and rock than the sound of the band, although there are still definite strains of bluegrass, and to a lesser degree, cajun. So, it doesn't sound quite as revolutionary as the band sounded in its heyday, but this is still a fine album of fast-tempo music that blurs genre lines. The guest musicians here are an impressive array. Stuart Duncan contributes his always-virtuosic fiddle-playing to most of the tracks, as does jam band favorite drummer, Jeff Sipe (AKA Apt. Q-258). Other notable appearances are made by newgrass progenitor Tim O'Brien (LoS has said that without Hot Rize, there would have been no LoS), Bill Nershi from String Cheese Incident, Ronnie McCoury, Darrell Scott, Reese Wynans (who played keyboards for Stevie Ray Vaughan), John Cowan (from New Grass Revival), Alison Brown, Andy Hall (Infamous Stringdusters), and a few other less-well-known players. The material here is a bit more consistently good than on Emmitt's previous solo albums, and includes some interesting covers (one from Van Morrison, and one from, yes, Supertramp, but don't let that put you off). If you like Leftover Salmon, your reaction to this album will depend on what, precisely, you like about the band. This album isn't as eclectic, but it has a similar energy, and of course, it has Drew Emmitt.

Further listening: Hot Rize, Acoustic Syndicate, Larry Keel, Blueground Undergrass, The Waybacks, New Grass Revival (and solo albums by Sam Bush), Yonder Mountain String Band, and String Cheese Incident. If you want something with a bit more of a country feel, but still rooted in bluegrass, try Brad Davis' solo albums.
