Synopsis

Amazon.com
Since a young David Grisman joined a newly discovered Doc Watson on the stage of Gerde's Folk City in 1962, the two have made indelible marks in the realm of acoustic music. Watson has attached his ripe vocals and fleet flatpicked guitar to traditional, old-time, and bluegrass; Grisman has blended a variety of traditional styles to form a progressive one. This cozy, comfortable record culls 14 songs recorded at an assortment of relaxed, informal, after-dinner sessions at Grisman's studio. As it moves from Jimmie Rodgers to Bill Monroe to jazz standards to traditional blues to rippling fiddle tunes, the record beautifully illustrates where the common ground lies. Most of all, the album exudes a passion and respect for the songs at hand; the superb picking (whether brisk or leisurely) is merely gravy. --Marc Greilsamer

These Guys Can Play
11/15/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw these two geniuses at Town Hall in New York last month, and of course they had me on the edge of my seat, in awe, the whole 3 hours. I knew it would be an incredible show, but I didn't realize just how incredible. This cd doesn't quite capture the atmosphere of a thousand satisfied customers whooping it up at the end of each song, and Doc Watson grinning ear to ear, or David Grisman's unbelievably relaxed attitude while playing even the most complicated, extended soloes. But that's stuff you have to see. This cd is fantastic. The atmosphere's like at a coffeehouse or something, where the audience is there, but silent, and the musicians are just a few feet away. It's just the two of them (with an occasional third man, Jackson, on guitar) trading soloes the whole way, with a mostly traditional bluegrass sound, except for on Summertime, the old Gershwin jazz tune, which people shouted for at the concert. I wish they'd release a lot more of these two."
Great album

"This is a wonderful CD. I am a long time Doc Watson fan and this has some of his best playing. David Grisman is outstanding. The two blend well with complexity and clear picking. It is an album by two masters."

"This is my first Doc Watson CD and it proved to be an amazing choice. Ive always been a long time David Grisman and Jerry Garcia fan and this hits perfectly with that style. When Doc Watson sings Summertime his voice is just so perfect. I would recomend this to any new fans or if you have always been a big fan. Very good instrumental songs on here, bring this backpacking if you happen to live in an evergreen state!"
