CD reviews for Jerry Douglas

Traveler CD review - Traveler
The resophonic guitar is certainly not exclusive to bluegrass - it's the least used of the six common bluegrass instruments - but to many people it's a Dobro© and it elicits a bluegrass connection. Mention Jerry Douglas' name and many who recognize him think of the multitude of great bluegrass associations he's had through the years, including many years with Union Station. If you've had the pleasure of listening to his CDs, though, you know his solo recordings »»»
Southern Filibuster: a Tribute to Tut Taylor CD review - Southern Filibuster: a Tribute to Tut Taylor
When a Dobro compilation tribute in honor of Tut Taylor is produced by Jerry Douglas, and the artist names range from Ickes to Auldridge, and Kohrs to Cashdollar to Leadbetter (and more), one suspects a winner. This is. Mostly bluegrass, there are strains of jazz licks to hints of rock 'n roll.

Jerry Christmas CD review - Jerry Christmas
There aren't many holiday albums from Dobro players out there on the market. But Jerry Douglas is about the best Dobro player in the business, so you likely only need this solitary one.

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Combs, Gill, Harris, Crow comprise one final musical platter – Vince Gill played host to an entertaining guitar pull, a show which also featured his longtime friend, Emmylou Harris, slightly newer friend Sheryl Crow and brand-new friend Luke Combs. Gill joked from the outset that this All for the Hall fundraising show needed Combs to sell tickets, and by the audience's response, it was clear many came only to see Combs.... »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots – Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
