) Garcia/Grisman, Acoustic CD
Jerry Garcia/David Grisman
In their first recording project in 15 years, Jerry
Garcia of the Grateful Dead and David Grisman, the father of
Dawg Music, team up for an all acoustic excursion into the
far corners of American music.
From Irving Berlin's "Russian Lullaby" and B.B. King's
"The Thrill Is Gone" to a brand new tune appropriately
entitled "Grateful Dawg," this self-titled collaboration is,
as one critic put it, "irresistible." It won a Bay Area
Music Award for independent record of the year, a Grammy
nomination in the category of contemporary folk and the
hearts of Deadheads and Dawgheads alike.
Longtime friends, Garcia and Grisman first met in the
early '60s at a bluegrass festival on the east coast. In
1970, Grisman laid down mandolin tracks on the Grateful
Dead's landmark album American Beauty. A few years later,
they joined forces again to form the short-lived,
ever-popular bluegrass band Old and in the Way. The two
renewed their friendship in 1990 and decided to record
something for Grisman's independent label. Garcia/Grisman is
the first acoustic-only recording of Jerry's long career.
