5.0 out of 5 stars The talent on this CD is unbelievable, 29 July 2002
This review is from: Lookout For Hope (Audio CD)
A mixture of styles and talents. Jerry Douglas is inspirational, the other musicians are excellent whether performing their skills in various instrumentals, or backing the spine tingling voice of Maura O'Connell. Definitely one to turn up and rock to, or turn down (slightly) and listen to.
No matter what your taste, this is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning!!!!!, 19 Jan 2004
This review is from: Lookout For Hope (Audio CD)
This is an extraordinarily good album and is from the same label as slide axe virtuoso Sonny Landreth. Jerry Douglas is the foremost dobro player in the world today and it shows. The musicianship throughout is stunning and the styles represented paint broad and eclectic musical brush-strokes. There is country, bluegrass, straight-ahead folk and tinges of blues. I love this album. It's hard to believe that one person can bring so many textures and shapes to one album. The standout track is instrumental heaven, Lookout For Hope which really gives an insight into the almost visionary status of this supreme performer. It doesn't matter what music you are into, if you want to hear beautiful acoustic music then this album is definitely for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leagues ahead, 30 Mar 2009

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lookout For Hope (Audio CD)
I've heard it said Jerry Douglas is one of the relatively few musicians from the non classical world who has the respect of classical musicians. This album shows why he is several notches above most of the competition. Effortless technical skill plus musicality, strong tunes, an electic mix of styles and the backup of a steller array of some of the best musicians on the US bluegrass/new acoustic music circuit. Frankly it's almost embarrassing listening to music made by better known but distinctly less talented musicians and why JD isnt more of a household name is a reflection of the public's affection for the mediocre, the boy/girl next door performer etc etc. If you're not familiar with JD this is a good place to start but if you've heard Alison Krauss you get an idea of what to expect.
