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. The artists were diverse, but it was somewhat of a surprise that each cut was written by Taylor; serious diversity from a traditional artist. From Dobro players of this caliber, »»»
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: Lambert smiles, dances the night away – Miranda Lambert didn't perform "Tin Man," one of her best, but also one of her saddest songs during this Wildcard tour stop. It's a song sung from the perspective of one who is sad that she has a heart that can be broken. That's not the current condition of Lambert's heart, though. She's apparently in a good... »»»
Concert Review: For Brooks and fans, a most unusual change of pace – To say that this was a change of pace for Garth Brooks - not to mention his fans - would be an understatement of the highest degree. Brooks all but begged during the show to be playing next door at Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots play. But, alas, Brooks exuded joy and excitement at the chance to play before about 500 people at a club,... »»»
