    State Of The Art Bluegrass

    The quartet known as Hot Rize was a versatile group that played both bluegrass and (as Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers) Western swing. On this set they concentrate on bluegrass. They play both traditional and more modern styles in the same vein as the Seldom Scene. The fact there are only four instruments ensures a crisp, open sound. Those interested in the Rize should makes this their first choice. Hint to Sugar Hill: a studio best-of would be nice. Tim O'Brien has gone on to expand his music in several other acoustic styles. Check out Red on Blonde or The Crossing.

    20 bluegrass cuts, an excellent value, 2 thumbs up

    Just listening to this new release of some great "old" material from Sugar Hill brings back many fond memories of a fantastic band that knew how to both pick and entertain. It is a Hot Rize album called "So Long of a Journey: Live at the Boulder Theater" and was recorded on March 6-7, 1996. Nick Forster hadn't told the other band members that he had asked some friends to record these shows. So the result is some totally uninhibited hot picking and singing from this band of almost brothers. Then, Charles Sawtelle and Nick started talking about how to mix the tapes. The tapes were lost for a number of years. Now, we are rewarded with some live Hot Rize during their 1996 reunion tour. If you weren't aware, Hot Rize won IBMA's "Entertainer of the Year" Award in 1990, and guitarist Charles Sawtelle died of cancer in 1999. This live album has 20 bluegrass cuts, making it an excellent value for its price. The band's alter-egos (Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers) don't make an appearance on it. "So Long of a Journey" gets my two thumbs up. (Joe Ross, staff writer, Bluegrass Now)

    At last at last!

    I was totally blown away when I read in the Denver Post that this album was about to be released. Having seen Hot Rize many times in concert, I hoped for the best, and got it. This music is toe-tapping harmonizing rockin' bluegrass with an updated, clear and professional sound, packed with Hot Rize faves. Put on the head phones and you'll float high on a mountain top!
