Review

"When At Last...a sweet, satisfying collection that pushes melody, lyricism and groove over gee-whiz licks." - JOHN WEISBERGER -- Nashville Scene - May 31, 2007

It's been way too long since guitarist Russ Barenberg made a solo album--too long, even, since he teamed up with resophonic guitarist Jerry Douglas and bassist Edgar Meyer on the memorable Skip, Hop & Wobble. But while his schedule's been constrained by a demanding day job, the longtime Nashville resident has been quietly building up a stock of great original tunes, polishing his skills and deepening his musicality. When At Last offers up the results in a sweet, satisfying collection that pushes melody, lyricism and groove over gee-whiz licks. - JOHN WEISBERGER -- Nashville Scene, May 31, 2007

By J. Ross on August 5, 2007
Format: Audio CD
Playing Time - 40:31 -- Russ Barenberg's first solo album in about twenty years arrived in my mailbox for review shortly after seeing his DVD instruction called "A Flatpicker's Guide to Better Playing" (originally released/titled "Acoustic Guitar Musicianship" in 1989). From Pennsylvania and now Nashville, Russ is known as an eclectic guitarist familiar with bluegrass, jazz, folk, Cajun, Celtic, Caribbean and Latin elements. He emphasizes tone, timing, control, rhythm and improvisation for guitarists. As an album, "When At Last" reinforces Russ' big open guitar sound's textures and shapes that make concise yet meaningful and merry musical statements. With the exception of the closer, a traditional French folk song called "Aux Marches du Palais," Russ' 2007 set is comprised of original instrumentals that reinforce the importance of personalized musical expression. A superior guitarist, Russ demonstrates accomplished understanding of his fingerboard, dynamics, ornamentation, syncopation, vibrato, damping, pick direction, and much more.

Whether writing a lively contradance tune like "Fat Mountain," Celtic-tinged "Pleasant Beggar," old-timey "On Milo's Back," or the new acoustic title track, Russ' music speaks with many moods from playful to reflective. When I first heard the opening track, "Little Monk," I immediately thought that the lyrical melody line had a 1970ish vintage new acoustic sound reminiscent of Russ' monumental "Skip, Hop and Wobble" album with Edgar Meyer and Jerry Douglas. Sure enough, Flux is back on Dobro and the piece written back in those days has been reincarnated with the contemporary flavorings of Stuart Duncan (fiddle) and Viktor Krauss (bass). As ever, Duncan is especially noteworthy with his fluid bow work that also offers harmony lines periodically.

The all instrumental cd When at Last is the first new release from Russ Barenberg in a number of years. It received a 2008 GRAMMY nomination for his tune, "Little Monk," the CD's opening track, for Best Country Instrumental Performance. And most recently a nomination for the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Instrumental Album of the Year. Joining Barenberg on When at Last are veteran musicians Dennis Crouch and Viktor Krauss on bass, Jerry Douglas on dobro, Stuart Duncan and Ruthie Dornfield on fiddle, Kenny Malone on percussion and drums, and Jeremiah McLane on accordion. All great players with hundreds of sessions under their belts.

Listeners will find a touch of Celtic, Americana, and bluegrass. My favorite tune on the CD is "Jump Back Barley," written about his dog Barley.

Russ has recorded a great body of work here. Anyone that enjoys acoustic guitar will find this soon to be a favorite.
