David Grisman is primarily known as a (perhaps even the) pioneer integrator of
jazz into the prog-bluegrass/newgrass/whatever-you-call-it ("Dawg Music" to
Grisman) branch of the bluegrass family tree. And with a number of other suspect
jazz dabblers (fiddler Vassar Clements, guitarist Tony Rice, and banjo picker
Tony Trischka, for instance) on hand, one might expect The David Grisman Rounder
Album (later released as The Rounder Compact Disc) to be a Grappelli-sounding
crossbreed experiment in line with Grisman's longstanding quintet. Yet, despite
some string-slingin', fancy-licked solos, the album is really a true-blue
bluegrass record. Why, this record has enough gospel harmonies, Bill Monroe
songs, stories of money lost on spend-thriftin' women, string sawin', and other
neat-sounding contractions to keep even your most die-hard hillbilly warm as a
mug of Grandpappy's moonshine on a cold Kentucky night. The tricky thing, the
"how'd he do that?" part, is that in addition to its unabashed down-home country
feel, this album is anything but traditional. Instrumentals like "Waiting on
Vassar," "Op. 38," and "Boston Boy" integrate a complex network of orchestral
voicings, solos, and interactive group play, and throughout the album solos by
hotshots like Clements, Rice, Jerry Douglas, and Grisman himself betray more
than a passing interest in other styles of improvisation. In the coming years,
the experimental wings of bluegrass would begin to incorporate electric
instruments and more overtly bear the influence of jazz and rock. But The David
Grisman Rounder Album is some of the earliest evidence that bluegrass can be
progressive without sacrificing any of its institutional twang.
