) David Grisman Quintet, DGQ-20--David Grisman Quintet
A Twenty Year Retrospective 1976-1996
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the David Grisman
Quintet, Acoustic Disc proudly presents DGQ-20, a special
all new, 3-CD retrospective of this world renowned group.
Since the first quintet took the stage on January 31,
1976 in Bolinas, California, acoustic music has never been
the same. In a March 1996 DGQ concert review, a Chicago
Tribune critic described Grisman's "dawg" music as being
among "the most important innovations in American music. By
blending the exuberant spirit of bluegrass, the inspired
melodies of classic American pop, the improvisatory
techniques of instrumental jazz and even the plaintive
gestures of turn of the century Klezmer, Grisman has created
a distinctive form of American music and lifted it to the
level of high art."
Tracing the DGQ in its various configurations, from that
very first concert to 1996, this compilation contains over
three hours of previously unreleased tracks (18 never before
recorded by the quintet) from both live and studio
performances. Among the outstanding DGQ alumni featured on
this project are Darol Anger, Mike Marshall, Mark O'Conner
and Tony Rice.
DGQ-20 also contains memorable collaborations with Svend
Asmussen, Jethro Burns, Vassar Clements, Al "Jazzbeaux"
Collins, Jerry Garcia, Stephane Grappelli and the Kronos
Quartet. Above all, DGQ-20 is a remarkable audio-biography
of the Dawg himself -- producer, composer, bandleader and
mandolinist David Grisman. Included in this special package
is a 48 page history of the band featuring many rare
photographs documenting this distinctive form of American
