Melodic, spacious, dynamic and full of life, this recording will mark Tony as a leader and definitive player for the next generation. With special guests: Mike Marshall, Todd Phillips, Brain, Kelly Joe Phelps, Stuart Duncan and Aaron Johnston.

CD Reviews

A fascinating mix
William Adair | 03/02/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Tony Furtado's "Roll My Blues Away" has become one of my favorite CDs, but for the life of me I can't tell you how it happened. He and his collaborators (Kelly Joe Phelps, Mike Marshall, Todd Phillips, Stuart Duncan, Aaron Johnston and an enigma known only as "Brain") don't just cross genres- they redefine them, and all with excellent taste. This music really grows on you.This CD isn't so much about blistering technique as it is about evocative melodies. The mood varies widely from joyful romps (Waterslide) to heavy blues (Ghost of Blind Willie Johnson), but all of the pieces fit together perfectly. In this case, the whole really is greater than the sum of its parts. Folks, finds like this don't come around every day."
Great record, great performances, a pleasure to record

"I've made a lot of records in the last fifteen years, but this one was very special. Not only did Tony write and play some exceptional melodies, but all the musicians were at their tops in performance. Previously known as a 2 time national banjo champ with 4 records under his belt, this recording marks Tony's first as a slide guitar player. He is already being dubbed the "next Ry Cooder".As the engineer and producer, this was one of the few records I've made that I can actually listen to after it comes out."
A Great Piece of Work

"I saw Tony open up for Eric Johnson in Cleveland last week and he put on an amazing set. It was stipped down, just him along with his guitar/banjo/slide. If you like acoustic music that blends bluegrass & celtic sound, then I recommend "Roll My Blues Away""
