Indie Music album by Tony Rice

Bluegrass and Jazz find common ground

This is one of my favorite Tony Rice albums. The song COMMON GROUND is one of the main songs I point "new" people to when they are curious and want to hear what Tony means by the term "spacegrass". It's not just Tony that makes this album great though. Bassist Todd Phillips is one of the best players in this genre and the thick, woody tone of his bass is captured in full force on this recording. And check out the Civil War feel on the song BACKWATERS when Todd bows his bass!

I've heard several guitarist-centered bands play MY FAVORITE THINGS and for my tastes, this is the definitive recorded "guitar version" of this song. MY FAVORITE THINGS belongs to Coltrane and Rice, although a few others try it.

OH! And since people reading this may not be too familiar with it, this is one of Tony's all instrumental albums.
