    Guitarist Bryan Sutton, known to fans of contemporary bluegrass for his work with Ricky Scaggs and Jerry Douglas, steps out on his own for a mostly instrumental exploration of country, bluegrass, folk and jazz styles. The swing side of things is covered by the jazz standards "Minor Swing" and "Lady Be Good"--the inspiration of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli is unmistakable here. Dolly Parton does some of her very best singing ever on the sparse, soulful ballad "Smoky Mountain Memories." "Highland Rim" is a rollicking Celtic-flavored bluegrass instrumental, and his version of the U2 song "When Love Comes To Town" (sung with a bluesy fervor by Jeff White) makes it sound like an old-time country classic. Jerry Douglas (who also recorded with jazz guitarist Bill Frisell on his sublime NASHVILLE) plays eerily tuneful yet forceful dobro throughout. Sutton's performance has a near-perfect balance of technique and warmth that's quietly dazzling.

  • Critic Reviews
    No Depression (5-6/00, p.114) - "...An impressive performance from one of the heirs apparent to the Nashville guitar throne....covering a lot of stylistic ground, from old-timey mountain music to a blue-grass take on U2..."
