    A prize one that fully delivers the goods

    Dobro Douglas dazzles us again with his new release, "Lookout For Hope," an evocative new acoustic offering that blends influences of bluegrass, jazz, classical and Celtic music. Full of excitement and energy, the music on this album is a real kick in the pants. The opening cut, an arrangement of Duane Allman's "Little Martha" features just dobro and bass (played by Barry Bales). "Patrick Meet the Brickbats" hits the bluegrass bull's eye dead on, with Douglas ably assisted by Bryan Sutton (guitar), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Sam Bush (mandolin), Barry Bales (bass), and Larry Atamanuik (drums). If one is going to have drums on their acoustic project, Atamanuik is the one who can tastefully play them. A real treat are the vocals of Maura O'Connell on "Footsteps Fall." Following a too-short interlude of "Monkey Let The Hogs Out," Douglas launches into the 10-minute jazzy title cut with Sutton, Bush, Chris Thile on mandolin, Byron House on bass, and Trey Anastasio on guitar. This aqueous composition will give you hint as to how Jerry Douglas earned his nickname of "Flux." A little sax, electric guitar, and drums are flavorfully added to provide an artistic interpretation to the hard-driving Douglas original, "Cave Bop." These instruments really spice up this project and tickle the musical palate, if your tastebuds are open to such things. In keeping with the flow, "The Wild Rumpus" and "The Sinking Ship" provide up-tempo and moderate jazz offerings. Jerry takes a 2-minute freewheeling solo on "In The Sweet By and By," and the project closes with James Taylor singing "The Suit." If one were to view this Jerry Douglas CD as an entire package, it would be a prize one that fully delivers the goods. (Joe Ross, staff writer, Bluegrass Now)

    Jerry Douglas is the Devil

    I love the Dobro, but you can't hear it in contemporary bluegrass unless "you know who" is playing it. How about some variety? Does this guy hold a monopoly on the industry or what? He must be stopped!
