Synopsis

Product Description
Twelve inspired tunes from the 'new acoustic' Matt Flinner Trio. With the backdrop of the Rockies to inspire them, Matt Flinner, Ross Martin, and Eric Thorin threw down a challenge to one another to write a new tune each day while on tour and perform it that evening. The players each rose rapidly to meet the challenge, and the tunes composed over the course of three Western tours show the depth and inspiration of these performers. With MUSIC DU JOUR, the Matt Flinner Trio sets a new standard for the bluegrass trio configuration.
 

CD Reviews

Nice twangy newgrass instrumental set

"Matt Flinner Trio
"Music Du Jour"
(Compass Records, 2009)
---------------------------------------
A fun set of newgrass instrumentals, with bright, bouncy melodies featuring mandolinist Matt Flinner along with guitarist Ross Martin and bassist Eric Thorin. This playful trio keeps their sound simple and straightforward, with joyous, playful tunes and heartfelt performances. All three contribute new songs that are both inventive and restrained, firmly rooted in old-school bluegrass, but with a nice poppy lilt. This album is consistently fun and engaging. Nice to listen to! (DJ Joe Sixpack, Slipcue Guide To Country Music)"
