Made the hair thats left on my legs stand up.
You know when players like Jerry Douglas and Leo Kottke play Duane's stuff, it solidifies the guitar icon Duane is.

Sometime last year as I was eating my dinner, I noticed in the entertainment section of my local fish wrap that "Allison Krauss & Union Station" were playing just down the road in about 30 minutes. I rushed over, grabbed a ticket and was blown away... not only be Allison, but by the talent in her band. Jerry Douglass played "Little Martha" that night..WOW!.. The amazing thing was hearing his interpretation, once again, someone else keeping Duane alive through his music.

Several years ago a friend of ours, Ernie Welch, from Mississippi, recorded a version of Ramblin Man that Johnny produced and Jerry Douglas played dobro on it. It was a really fun version of the song I'd forgotten about until now. Jerry Douglas must have made a visit to the 'crossroads'. He's a dobro genius.....and a really nice guy.

I recall years ago on a PBS telecast Leo Kottke performing and saying to the audience, "And now I want to play for you the most beautiful song that I've ever heard."

Then he played "Little Martha".

Jerry's new album is just about to break in a couple of weeks and will be called "Glide," after a new instrumental he wrote. I'll be seeing him and Jill and the guys at Merlefest in a week or so. His birthday is two days away from mine in May, we're both Geminis, his family came out of West Virginia as mine did, his family migrated from West Virginia to Ohio as mine did, our grandparents lived in the mountains, we're three years apart in age, and came up at the same wonderful time in music of the 1960's and 70's, and that includes having the Allman Brothers as a big part of the soundtrack. It is the so-called 'newgrass' generation, a bunch of dern hippies who listened to as much Jimi Hendrix, Sly and the family Stone, Miles Davis, Django, and Allman Brothers as Bill Monroe, and who brought all of those influences together. The old timers took a while to get used to the hippy influence, referring to the late Bill Monroe's famous line about folks messing around and changing bluegrass music, "That ain't no part of nothing." Still, some first generation bluegrassers like JD Crowe and Earl Scruggs did have an open mind, which is why JD Crowe and the New South's album "Old Home Place" from 1975 was so important as he hired a bunch of young guys for his band at that time that included Jerry Douglas, Ricky Skaggs, and Tony Rice. Although Bill Monroe was prone to admitting it, creatrive yet stubborn man that he was, the newgrassers did influence him, and that is why he started to write songs in minor keys including his amazing instrumental callled "Jerusalem Ridge" written in the 1970's. All of which is why Jerry Douglas and I get along so good, because I haven't pursued my guitar playing in any way near what I should have, so he is out there doing it, coming up with music that makes the most sense to me, pushing the envelope the way it should be pushed, creating music unique to my generation.


Jerry has considered working up a version of "Jessica" in recent years, but he hasn't come up with a unique enough version, as of yet, to go with, as he is very respectful of important music like that. Sam Bush also throws in a lot of ABB riffs into his music. In the last year or so, Jerry has added "Sahib Teri" to his Little Martha melody in solidarity with his buddy Derek Trucks. Having recorded his own musical collaboration with musician/slide player from India VM Bhatt callled Bourbon and Rosewater in 1996, he is a head of the curve a bit.

The album that "Little Martha" comes off of is Lookout For Hope, which is a gem. There is the title cut on there that is a wonderful 7-minute instrumental where Douglas jams with Sam Bush, Bryan Sutton, and Trey Anastazio....and the sound of real crickets recorded outside on a summer's night is heard throughout only the waves of cricket song is digitally altered to coincide with the beats and polyrythms of the tune. Cool stuff.

Jerry's mellower stuff is always cool, and few musicians back up a female singer better. But I always look forward to his trademark progressive instrumentals. If you go to his website -www.jerrydouglas.com - and let the front page load, you will hear the first part of a challenging instrumental called "Who's Your daddy," a good one to learn if motivated.

Jerry also did a cool instudio solo gig at WBUR in Boston back in 2002 where he gets into the possibilities of the squareneck dobro, and it is still online here,

Master of his craft, Douglas promotes upcoming release


By Gerald M. Gay

Arizona Daily Star

Tucson, Arizona | Published: 05.02.2008


For master dobro and lap steel guitar player Jerry Douglas, B.B. King's Blues Club is a fine spot to play in New York City. Douglas has had a number of successful shows at King's, including one late last week, but it doesn't get top billing on his list of "favorite venues visited in the Big Apple."

"We performed on tour with Paul Simon at Radio City Music Hall last year," Douglas said. "And the last time I was there, I played Carnegie Hall. That is probably the best place to play when you can swing it."

Douglas was making his way from New York City to MerleFest in North Carolina when he spoke to the Star. The accomplished musician is taking a break from touring with the likes of Simon, Alison Krauss and James Taylor to hit the road solo and promote his upcoming release, "Glide," due out this summer.

Douglas stops through the Rialto Theatre tonight. The Crystal Ridge Bluegrass Band opens.

I understand you are a staple at MerleFest. Are you excited to get out there?

"It is always great. It is the first big meeting place of the year for everybody. You get to see how everybody has wintered. I played the very first MerleFest. We were on a flatbed truck performing for 1,000 to 2,000 people and they considered it a huge success. Since then, I've stood on stage there and played to 80,000. It has grown beyond expectation."

You are headlining this tour that comes through Tucson. Do you prefer accompanying artists or taking the spotlight?

"It is not so much being a headliner as it is playing my own material for an entire show. That is where the satisfaction comes in knowing the material inside out and hearing other people play your ideas. When I'm playing with Alison or James, I'm covering a spot on their material. This is more satisfying."

Is there a direction or concept behind your new album, "Glide"?

" 'Glide' has taken a decidedly more country turn than the last record. The last record had Derek Trucks and John Fogerty. It was more of a rock record with a rock attitude. This one has Earl Scruggs and Tony Rice. Rodney Crowell sang a song and we did another song with Travis Tritt. It has the same go-for-the-jugular mentality with some nice country songs on there.

Was creating a country album your intent?

"I didn't mean to. Whatever I do is going to be bluegrass-oriented. I get the sense of a record as I'm writing the record. Then it is like a child. First, it is a baby and it can't walk. Then, it gets this flow of ideas in it and all of a sudden it is walking and standing up. This one is running now. It is a really a nice record and I'm proud of it."
