Product Description

Product Description

At different times critics have called Jerry Douglas the Charlie Parker and the Jimi Hendrix of the resophonic guitar. In addition to being widely acknowledged as America's foremost master of the instrument, Douglas is a freewheeling, forward-thinking recording artist whose output draws upon a bottomless well of musical inspiration, incorporating elements of bluegrass, country, rock, jazz, blues and Celtic into his distinctive musical vision.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Dobro masterclass from Jerry Douglas 24 April 2007
By The Country Grumpkin VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
According to the sticker on the CD casing, Life Magazine voted Jerry Douglas 'One of the ten best country musicians of all time.' Well, I for one am not about to challenge that assertion, though Jerry may not see himself as 'only' a country musician. Steeped in bluegrass music, Jerry is perhaps best known for his prolific session work, and for his work on the 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?' soundtrack and with Alison Krauss. He's been given plenty of earache in the past by 'self-appointed musical purists' who've questioned not only the Dobro's place in 'real' bluegrass music, but also the way that Jerry (and others) has pushed its musical boundaries. My own view is if you don't like it, don't buy it. But don't decry it. There are so many up and coming young musicians keeping the tradition alive; and it's hardly the remit of others to confine musical virtuosos like Jerry who go where the music takes them. For my part, I thank John Starling, John Duffey, Mike Auldridge, Tony Rice, Jerry Douglas et al for the wonderful music they have pioneered pushing the bluegrass boundaries. This Sugar Hill compilation, running to almost one hour's great music, comprises tracks from 4 of Jerry's Sugar Hill albums - 4 are from 'Slide Rule', 1 from 'Yonder'(with Peter Rowan), 4 from 'Restless On The Farm', no less than 5 tracks from 'Lookout For Hope' - and one ('Birdland') from the 21-track V/A album 'The Great Dobro Sessions'. Throughout the musicianship is peerless. 'The Wild Rumpus' is a great starter (loved the, er, sax), the dextrous 'We Hide And Seek' has some lively fiddle from Stuart Duncan, and the very catchy 'Birdland' is a real highlight. There are 3 solo tracks by Jerry - 'A New Day Medley', Monkey Let The Hogs Out', and 'In The Sweet By And By' sound absolutely beautiful. Read more ›

I`ve never been a fan of C & W, but after listening to the Transatlantic Sessions cd`s ( over`n`over again ) I decided to check out Jerry Douglas, I`m glad I did,what a great album and what a talented musician.For me it`s not true `yeehaar` stuff... more a unique style featuring several generes of music,very emotional and heart warming,my Dad would have liked this,if he had been alive.It`s a cd I`ll never tire off - wonderful ! ! Brings back some very fond memories...... Enjoy !

Jerry Douglas is truly a magnificent musician. The album is a selection of numbers from his work with Sugar Hill. He is Americas leading Dobro player. This album is outstanding and is highly recommended.
