Product Description

Fair Weather is Alison Brown's follw-up album to her 1998 Out of the Blue. Featuring a a thick roster of guest appearances by Darol Anger, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Stuart Duncan, Bela Fleck, Vince Gil, David Grier, Gene Libbea, Claire Lynch, Tim O'Brien, Mike Marshall, Todd Phillips and Tony Rice.

Considering the bluegrass renaissance we've gladly witnessed at the end of the 1990s, it's not surprising that banjo wizard Alison Brown would move away from her more progressive jazz-based endeavors and return to more traditional-sounding bluegrass. High-profile, all-star affairs such as Béla Fleck's Bluegrass Sessions, Steve Earle and the Del McCoury Band's The Mountain, and Dolly Parton's The Grass Is Blue helped the genre rise to new heights in popularity in 1999. Who knows what spurred Brown to make Fair Weather, but the end result is a stunning, appealing, broad-ranging, star-studded record. In the company of acoustic-music royalty--Sam Bush, Stuart Duncan, Mike Marshall, Tony Rice, David Grier, Matt Flinner, Darol Anger, Jerry Douglas, Béla Fleck, Tim O'Brien, and Todd Phillips--Brown plows through hard-charging breakdowns, minor-keyed newgrass, solo-banjo lullabies, and everything in between. Vince Gill sings the bright title track and Claire Lynch handles vocals on the delightful "Hummingbird." The two famous cover songs--Elvis Costello's "Everyday I Write the Book" (sung by Bush) and Fred Neil's "Everybody's Talkin'" (sung by O'Brien)--are pleasant enough diversions, though they pale in comparison to the likes of "Shake and Howdy," an intricate, classically tinged trio with Anger and Marshall. And, lest we forget, the compositional skills and mesmerizing banjo work of Ms. Brown, a woman who is acutely aware of the vast melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic possibilities of her instrument and always takes full advantage of them. --Marc Greilsamer
