OK, I just got another package from Rounder Records (damn the net is sweet for someone like me with oddball taste in music), and I now have all of Lynn Morris' work. I'm impressed.

When I'm in a used CD store (which is frequently), I routinely buy anything on Rounder, or Philo. I've yet to be dissapointed.

The 'net has devastated the local CD/record shops around here, but in recompense, we get more access to more music than ever. And useful reccos like this- bluegrass is second only to jazz in my life, and so many of my favorites have shuffled off their mortal coil. It's great to find a new one. Thanks, Sheldon.

What is Bluegrass?

Really..probably heard it before but did not know that it had a name.

I am always into new music. But instead of just buying this latest cd / lp you mentioned. Does anyone maybe have a suggestion or top 5 of the best bluegrass albums?

10 min later..just listened to a couple of samples of the Lynn Morris band..sounds like country! The only country I have in my collection is Don Williams.great voice and music. But generally country is one of the least attractive types of music for me...

So are there maybe bluegrass/jazz crossover albums worth looking into?



Cheers,
Bas

Bluegrass is much like country, and is really part of the roots of what country has evolved into. Modern country in this country is more like rock music than what country used to be. Country music is a mix of cowboy western music, mountain folk music, and other traditional music influences.

Don Williams is much more traditional country and much closer to bluegrass than many of the modern country artists that are on the radio today.

Here's a bit of bluegrass history:

Default Bluegrass etc. on the web

one of the most popular college radio stations in NY -- 24 hour a day bluegrass/n'orleans/b-bop etc -- is WFUV in NY -- (they used to give "Irish" lessons or Celitc on Saturday a.m. now it's more "eclectic Americana) great bluegrass etc at www.wfuv.org streaming live.
