    Andrew Marlin and Tommy Edwards

    This was 34 minutes well spent and I thought other folks might enjoy it if you haven't seen it already. Great harmonies, great picking by both gentlemen and it was cool to hear Andrew picking a few...
  4. John Reischman & The Jaybirds, Deep End Sessions

    One of the best total band sounds in all of bluegrass. And one of the best mandolinists on the planet. A whole set to enjoy.

    I think Jesse McReynolds was always recognized as a brilliant and very versatile innovator. I don't think he ever got "branded" (does that mean labelled, in a negative way?) as a stylist by anyone. I...

    Re: O'Brien, McCoury, Thile - Bluegrass Stomp

    That's hilarious. Bill Monroe sprayed notes around like a blender with the top left off. Not to denigrate him in the least, mind you.

    Man, both those were just great. I really like the mellow tone and musicianship on Cantabile! As for Aonzo, he is truly a gifted player. It was interesting to see him plucking the open string bass...

    Indeed, the ever-present, metronomic chop is a recent development. Now, the Osborne-Duffey-Wakefield era also chopped, a lot; same with the Grisman-Bush-Roland White era, but the tick tick tick of...
