Editors’ Notes

These two wily Greenwich Village folk veterans met as students at NYU and as pickers in the Washington Square Park jam sessions. It was four decades later that singer/guitarist Sebastian and mandolinist Grisman finally reconnected, and that reunion spawned this unassuming recording, a nostalgic, low-key stroll. There are moments here worth savoring, such as the gentle, light-hearted reading of Mississippi John Hurt’s “I’m Satisfied” and the slowed-down, grooved-up version of “EMD,” the jazzy newgrass classic that kicked off Grisman’s debut Quintet album. “Walk Right Back,” Sonny Curtis’s country-pop chestnut, is given a delightfully understated instrumental treatment, as is Will Shade’s “Jug Band Waltz” (with Sebastian on harp) and Grisman’s original “Dawg’s Waltz” (originally recorded with Jerry Garcia). The pair even takes a crack at the Spoonful’s “Coconut Grove,” although their brief amble through Sebastian’s “Daydream” is hidden at the end of the final track.

John Sebastian's soothing, familiar voice, guitar & harmonica + The bluesey-jazzy mandolin of David "Dawg" Grisman=More than just a "Passing Fantasy!" After just one sampling; I know "I'm Satisfied" these two "Old Hands" have a winner here! "Old And In The Way?'; Well; "It's Not Time Now" to retire; Dudes; "Keep On Keepin' On!" Grimmbo.


They've still got it , in spades. Saw them together live in Portland , OR last night , where they did most of this LP and so much more. What a duo

A Fabulous Marriage

I've known and loved both of these musicians from the early days, and I've listened over and over again to virtually all of Grisman's collaborative albums. This pairing of Sebastian and Grisman was made in heaven. The decades of experience and artistry shows in virtually every track. Grisman's artistry and inventiveness blends seamlessly with Sebastion's easy, comfortable love of the music; on this album these two classic musicians become one.

David Grisman is normally associated with the bluegrass wing of country music, but his music owes almost as much to jazz as it does to traditional American folk influences. Because he couldn't think of what to call his unique, highly intricate, harmonically advanced hybrid of acoustic bluegrass, folk, and jazz without leaning toward one idiom or another, he offhandedly decided to call it "dawg music" -- a name which, curiously enough, has stuck. A brilliant mandolinist, with roots deep in the Quintet...
