5.0 out of 5 stars The Del McCoury Bluegrass Band + The Preservation Hall Jazz Band = 100% Great American Hybrid Music!!!!!, September 14, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: American Legacies (Audio CD)
First, I'd like to mention that I enjoyed reading the prior reviews, and I really liked what most the earlier reviewers stated. Being from Louisiana, I have been a long time fan of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, from New Orleans, Louisiana. Also, I have been a long time fan of the Del McCoury Bluegrass Band. I love Jazz & I love Bluegrass. This combination of one of the best Jazz bands in the world, along with one of the best bluegrass bands in the world, creates some Pure, Original, "Hybrid", Outstanding American Music at it's very best. "American Legacies" is a very fitting name for this combo of genres.

The songs are all outstanding, this is definitely Album oriented music. The songs include great Amercian Classics, including Jazz Standards, Country/Bluegrass Standards, and even a Gospel Song (I'll Fly Away). I really enjoyed their take on the Hank Williams Classic "Jambalya", it has always been a Louisiana Favorite.

If you liked the Deluxe Edition of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band's Benefit Music Outreach Album CD, with various guest artists from various genres, including The Del McCoury Band, then you will most likely enjoy this great album CD & vice versa. Also, if you like the Del McCoury Band you will probably like the Charlie Daniels Bluegrass DVD: "Preachin', Prayin', Singin", which includes members of the Del McCoury Band.

This is a Great American Music Album CD, and I highly recommend it. Thanks very much!!!!
