Crisp and Clear

Great combination here of easy going and razor sharp riffs. These two trade off leads and licks like old friends telling stories. Relaxed and refreshing.

Fantastic Album--Never Gets Old

How many versions of "Summertime" have you heard? Well, Doc plays a solo that will make this version of the best you've ever listened to. The three different tempos on "Sweet Georgia Brown" are also a lot of fun.

I love it.

This is a fantastic album. Doc Watson and David Grisman are just so comfortable together that you get the sense that they probably could have recorded the first take on every song here, and ended up with a great record. Hard to pick favorites here; the whole album is outstanding.

refreshing the standards

13 - Paramount yodeling: "Blue as I can Be" 2 -G-rated lovesong for hayseeds: "All About You" 6 & 9 - NPR-ified American classics that remind you how great the songs are though over-used: "Frankie & Johnny" and "Sweet Georgia Brown" Unbelieveable string work. Vocals are very clean, and warm. Fans of Ry Cooder, the Byrds and Abigail Washburn will love this.

They Say All Music Guide

Flatpicking legend Doc Watson and mandolin virtuoso David Grisman have been playing together periodically for more than 30 years. In 1997, Grisman compiled some of the gems from these informal sessions and released them on his Acoustic Disc label. The 14 cuts were recorded mostly at Grisman’s home in California between 1987 and 1991. The tracks are mainly traditional country and bluegrass tunes played lovingly and often with great restraint. On songs like the George Gershwin classic “Summertime,” Grisman in particular makes every note count. Watson’s voice is still strong and soulful. But, it is the instrumental duets that really shine, especially the two Bill Monroe tunes “Bluegrass Stomp” and “Kentucky Waltz” and the title track, “Doc and Dawg.” This is an intimate collaboration between two men at the top of their craft who share a passion for acoustic music. It is a pleasure to listen in. – S. Colby Miller
