DONNA ULISSE 'Holy Waters'

DONNA ULISSE 'Holy Waters'

  • $13.50


After two nicely done straight Bluegrass albums, the Virginia-born Ulisse tackles an all Bluegrass gospel project, with much the same lineup of backing musicians that appeared on her first two records: Rob Ickes (dobro), Scott Vestal (banjo), Andy Leftwich (mandolin & fiddle) and Byron House on upright bass. Keith Sewell has again done a nice job of production and the overall sound is quite consistent with Ms. Ulisse’s first two recordings. As on her earlier albums, she has written almost all of the songs, and while they are fairly strong, my guess is that 3 or 4 more “standards” would have made some of these stand out more, creating an even stronger album overall. By far the most impressive track is the one song that Ulisse did not write, Carter Stanley’s WHO WILL SING FOR ME—Donna’s rendition of this classic is wonderful. Ms. Ulisse—who is related by marriage to Carter Stanley—is a fine singer who has made the transition from country to Bluegrass: she seems quite at home in that genre now. HE WILL, THIS CRAZY WORLD, LORD I’M YOURS, MY JESUS, etc.
