NASHVILLE BLUEGRASS BAND 'American Beauty'

Another wonderful collection by this long established 5-piece band that plays essentially hard-driving traditional Bluegrass (with just a slight contemporary touch). With solid banjo by Alan O’Bryant and the superb fiddling of Stuart Duncan, this band does not have to take a back seat to anyone instrumentally, but really, it’s the vocals that give this group its real power & flavor: O’Bryant (6 lead vocals) and Pat Enright (4) are both exceptional singers, and their duets are as pleasing as their solos, if not more so. This album rings with one good song after another, starting with an impressive RED CLAY HALO (O’Bryant produced Valerie Smith’s wonderful version of this song, and his rendition comes close). FIDDLIN’ BILL and JOHNSON BOYS are peppy, fun and perfectly styled—they are interspersed with the hardcore ALL ALONE, the title song, a fine version of SLOW LEARNER, and Roland White singing Dylan’s LIVIN’ THE BLUES. Fine, satisfying music by one of the top bands in Bluegrass. HOLIDAY PICKIN, DOWN A WINDING ROAD, HOMELESS WALTZ, JUST LIKE A FIDDLE.
