5.0 out of 5 stars Very surprised by how well this odd combo worked 14 April 2011
By Jeremy Brock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been a long time Del Mccoury band fan, and when I first herd of this collaboration I was leary. Bluegrass and jazz are not two genres that normally go together; and that is what makes this so special. Not only does this work, but it flows naturally and never seems forced. All the musicians on this project are ultra talented and feed off each other very well. The music vascilates between the bluegrass and jazz so well you almost never notice it happens.

All the songs are very upbeat and pleasant. Del's voice with a full jazz and bluegrass band is great. The highlight of the album for me is the gospel song "I'll fly away". It is the bet rendition of this song I've herd in some time. Also of intrest is the remake of Del's song "50/50 chance", which is "jazzified". A very nice touch, on a very nice album.

I love the fact that the Del Mccoury band has only improved over the years (no small feat considering how long Del has been doing this), and are always willing to try new things and create one-of-a-kind music. A+ effort and outcome all the way, and if your a fan of either group you want to give this a spin.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Del McCoury Bluegrass Band + The Preservation Hall Jazz Band = 100% Great American Hybrid Music!!!!! 14 Sept. 2011
By Gary Covington - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First, I'd like to mention that I enjoyed reading the prior reviews, and I really liked what most the earlier reviewers stated. Being from Louisiana, I have been a long time fan of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, from New Orleans, Louisiana. Also, I have been a long time fan of the Del McCoury Bluegrass Band. I love Jazz & I love Bluegrass. This combination of one of the best Jazz bands in the world, along with one of the best bluegrass bands in the world, creates some Pure, Original, "Hybrid", Outstanding American Music at it's very best. "American Legacies" is a very fitting name for this combo of genres.

The songs are all outstanding, this is definitely Album oriented music. The songs include great Amercian Classics, including Jazz Standards, Country/Bluegrass Standards, and even a Gospel Song (I'll Fly Away). I really enjoyed their take on the Hank Williams Classic "Jambalya", it has always been a Louisiana Favorite.

If you liked the Deluxe Edition of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band's Benefit Music Outreach Album CD, with various guest artists from various genres, including The Del McCoury Band, then you will most likely enjoy this great album CD & vice versa. Also, if you like the Del McCoury Band you will probably like the Charlie Daniels Bluegrass DVD: "Preachin', Prayin', Singin", which includes members of the Del McCoury Band.

This is a Great American Music Album CD, and I highly recommend it. Thanks very much!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Combo Classic 13 Oct. 2012
By tactek - Published on Amazon.com

A combination of American classic music styles. The music can be used by each style interchangably with great results. The quality of the bands and the selection of tunes illustrates how each band can jam with each tune.
Highly recommended for fans of both traditional jazz and bluegrass and those who want to experience outstanding musianship.

4.0 out of 5 stars Long in the tooth 26 Jan. 2013
By Long in the tooth - Published on Amazon.com

This is an interesting album. The playing is excellent. The music is lively and vibrant. However, I was led to believe from other reviews that it was cross over between dixieland and bluegrass. In truth it had little flavor of either and more resembled a lively swing type music. Still I would recommend it highly for its own unique qualities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collaboration 22 Sept. 2012

When it comes to bluegrass and New Orleans jazz, nobody does it better than these two bands. To hear them together is a special treat, especially when they are creating a new American Legacy.
