What a wonderful sounding piece of music. Not really bluegrass, but pretty close. David calls his music, Dawg Music.
This was an album that I could listen to front to back day after day.
David, mandolin, was performing with a quintet during this period. Band members included, Tony Rice on guitar, Darol Anger on violin, Mike Marshall on violin and mandolin, and Tony Phillips on bass. All heavyweights!
Highlights include ’16…16, Dawg’s Bull,Minor Swing’ and ‘Neon Tetra.’ But listen to the whole album. You won’t be disappointed.
“Hot Dawg” reached #14 on the Billboard Jazz Charts early into 1979.
Here’s a live version of ‘Dawg’s Bull” from the old ‘Fridays’ show on ABC.
