Devlin

All Music Guide - Zac Johnson

These 15 instrumentals are lyrical without words, poetic without stanzas, and a brilliant glimpse into the soul of one of progressive bluegrass' most inventive players.

    Tony Rice’s Devlin is a more reflective, unified offering

    Tony Rice’s Devlin is a more reflective, unified offering than The Bluegrass Guitar Collection, his other instrumental anthology. That is probably due to the fact it was drawn from only two albums. At the time Rice was playing a style he named spacegrass. It was derived from the music he played in David Grisman’s quintet and was as much if not more jazz than bluegrass. Fans of acoustic players like Grisman, Mark O’Connor, and Nickel Creek should check out this CD. Traditional bluegrass fans should buy The Bluegrass Guitar Collection. Rice devotees should own both.
