"Bill Emerson is one of the most influential musicians in bluegrass. He began playing guitar in 1955 and banjo the following year, which was when he heard a performance by Uncle Bob & the Blue Ridge Partners on a Rockville, MD, radio station. He was so captivated by their sound that he went to the station to meet them, and was asked to join them. A few months later, Emerson joined ... Read more in Amazon's Bill Emerson Store

Bill Emerson is a legendary banjo player with roots stretching back to the late `50s. He co-founded the Country Gentlemen with guitarist Charlie Waller, held a featured slot with Jimmy Martin, and provided direction to musicians such as Jerry Douglas and Ricky Skaggs. He spent 20 years in the military, most of it in the Navy's bluegrass band, Country Current, began recording as a leader in the early 90s, and formed Sweet Dixie for their eponymous debut in 2007. Emerson's always stretched the edges of the bluegrass canon, mixing traditional material with songs drawn from country, folk and rock. Most famously, he's credited with adapting Manfred Mann's "Fox on the Run" into a bluegrass staple.

Sweet Dixie's new album includes a few traditional sources, such as Alton Delmore's "The Midnight Train," Hazel Dickins' "I Can't Find Your Love Anymore," and Tompall Glaser's "I Don't Care Anymore" the latter drawn from the catalog of Flatt & Scruggs. The nostalgia of Lionel Cartwright's "Old Coal Town" is also a good fit, and the English folk of "The Black Fox" is augmented with mandolin and banjo spotlights. More inventively, the group reworks Marty Stuart's rolling country-rock "Sometimes the Pleasure's Worth the Pain" (originally from 1999's The Pilgrim) into an up-tempo acoustic arrangement, and Chris Hillman's "Love Reunited" is shorn of its original `80s production sound, trading the Desert Rose Band's crystalline guitars for a more timeless banjo.

I purchased this CD hoping to hear Wayne Lanham play bluegrass fiddle but alas, he is playing mandolin instead. It's not that he plays mandolin badly, it's just that I love the passionate way he plays the fiddle more. Check him out on Patent Pending Bluegrass Band's "Long Road Home" album to see what I mean if you dig bluegrass fiddle at it's best.
Bill Emerson/Sweet Dixie's sound is OK, but personally I like Patent Pending better.
