Editorial Reviews

The phrase living legend may be overused, but in the case of the master Dobro guitarist Jerry Douglas, it s also an understatement. In addition to his first-call status as a Nashville recording icon, hes adored by rock musicians like Paul Simon, Elvis Costello, James Taylor, and John Fogerty, all of whom have featured him on tours. Jerry is a 13-time Grammy© winner and the long-time featured soloist with the multi-platinum Alison Krauss and Union Station. And he was an NEA Heritage Foundation grant winner in 2004.



With Traveler, Jerry has finally recorded an album that will even further elevate his already impressive stature from super-sideman to a bona fide front-rank creator of musical Americana. Produced by Russ Titelman (Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Ry Cooder, Little Feat, etc.), and recorded in New Orleans, Nashville, and London, this ambitious collection of vocals and instrumentals enlists a truly awesome cast of characters in support of an epic vision that combines Country/Bluegrass, R&B, and even a ballad with roots in the British Isles (Paul Simons The Boxer performed with Mumford & Sons and the song s composer.) Other highlights include two New Orleans classics--- Something You Got, with vocals and guitar by Eric Clapton; and High Blood Pressure, with vocals by Keb Mo and a gang of the Crescent City s finest including Dr. John.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best JD Solo Disk July 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is, by far, the best & most thoroughly satisfying Jerry Douglas album out there. I have been a fan of Jerry for about 1/4 of a century. I truly believe The Telluride Sessions, by the once&done superband Strength in Numbers (Sam Bush, JD, Edgar Meyer, Bela Fleck & Mark O'Connor), is the best disk of the newgrass genre, and Hop Skip Wobble (w JD, Edgar & Russ Barenburg), is not far behind. Of course, his work with Allison Krauss is well known.
Unfortunately, his solo work hasn't always seemed to quite live up to his collaborations or even backing performances. I am not entirely sure why: song selection, perhaps.
Traveler, though, is a star studded tour de force. You want star power? How you likin' Eric Clapton, Mumford & Sons, Paul Simon, Allison Krauss, along w old buddies Sam & Bela, to name a few? The music has a tremendous amount of variety, with a heavy emphasis on the blues, from the slow blues of "on a Monday" (featuring a rare lead vocal by Jerry), the crunchy rock of So Here We Are, smooth slow blues w Marc Cohn, Delta blues of Keb Mo w High Blood Pressure, slow blues of Something You Got w Clapton. Duke & Cookie 1st appeared on the aforementioned Telluride Sessions, & reunites JD w co-writer Sam Bush, while fellow SiN member Bela Fleck shines on Gone to Fortingill. King Silkie is straight ahead bluegrass. Although nothing can outshine the original, The Boxer featuring Mumford & Sons almost equals it, which is saying quite a lot. Paul Simon is listed as being featured on this song, but I'll be damned if I can even pick him out in the mix, about my only quibble. American Tune & Spain are both favorites of mine in their original versions, & they sound wonderful put together with Jerry's plaintive dobro.
In short, there isn't a clinker in the bunch, and there is more than enough star power & variety to appeal to a wide range of tastes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Stunning Performance By Jerry Douglas! June 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The 13 times Grammy winner, singer-songwriter & dobro master guitarist Jerry Douglas gives a stunning performance in his new CD release titled 'Traveler'. The CD (11 tracks) sees Jerry Douglas playing wonderful guitar work & he also plays a mixture of variety of musical styles (americana, country, bluegrass, blues, jazz & R 'n B) as he experienced these styles/songs while traveling around the US and the world to challenge himself on the making of this record and hence the title 'Traveler'. Check him out on YouTube on his take in the making of this new CD 'Traveler'. Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "So Here We Are" (incredible guitar work & melody on this just under 6 minutes instrumental rock track), "The Boxer" (wonderful melody and incredible soulful vocals by Paul Simon & Mumford And Sons on this cover of the classic Paul Simon's composition), "Gone To Fortingall" (another incredible multi-layered instrumental track. This is my favourite track on this CD), "Right On Time" (country-ish blues base track with a beautiful melody & a great vocals by fellow Grammy winner Marc Cohn) & "American Tune/Spain" (another multi-layered americana instrumental track). Great tracks include "On A Monday" (great bluesy track & melody. This is the first single with Jerry Douglas on lead vocals), "Something You Got" (slow-tempo bluesy track, great horns & vocals featuring the legendary 'slow hand' Eric Clapton), "High Pressure" (jazzy track with great horns featuring Keb' Mo'), "Frozen Fields" (pop-ish/contemporary track with great vocals featuring Alison Krauss & Union Station) & "King Silkie" (great violin & dobdro guitar combination on this instrumental bluegrass track). Okay song is "Duke And Cookie" (another instrumental track). Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Excellent - Jerry's Best Yet! August 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Jerry Douglas has clearly traveled into new territory with this recording, and it's a wonderful thing!

This latest recording by the Nashville master of slide/dobro is a great example of the power of synergy (the whole being greater than the parts). All too often these days great artist's enlist headliner names but to no real synergistic effect. This time it works beautifully to fill out and compliment Jerry's amazing skills, and support him in a wide variety of styles. What delights me most is hearing him branch out from his usual dobro sound to include lots of lap steel slide playing, as well as acoustic slide guitar. The result is each track is different - often more Blues than Bluegrass - and great!

On A Monday - An upbeat bluesy number leads off, letting us know we are in for something different (Jerry doing a good job on lead vocals and acoustic slide guitar).

Something You Got - A slow (Chicago style) bluesy number with nice vocals from Eric Clapton and nice alternating leads (Jerry's lap steel slide playing is superb!). I'm usually luke-warm about Clapton, but not this time.

So Here We Are - My favorite track - a rocking instrumental original with Jerry's lap steel sounding really strong and sweet (more like a Sonny Landreth or Tony Furtado or Derek Trucks than what we'd expect from Jerry).

The Boxer - A great song, well covered with great vocals and a wide variety of instrumentation by Marcus Mumford, and Jerry's distinctive dobro on a plaintive lead....

Duke and Cookie - The late '80's Strength In Numbers New-grass classic revisited here with Jerry and Sam Bush in a hot, stripped down dobro/mandolin duet.

This is a good CD, but its almost like Jerry's parts are afterthoughts. On some cuts he barely plays. Musicianship is very good however. A lot of the tunes don't fit his style. Read more
