I saw Jim Hurst playing with Rob Ickes at ResoSummit last year in Nashville. He's an excellent guitarist and a fine vocalist. I look forward to hearing this collaboration!

I saw this trio in March at Freight and Salvage in Berkeley. This was when they were recording the cd. It was a really interesting show, very personal. The range of material was a delight, with each member taking turns introducing tunes they chose for the set. The performances were superb.

I just got back from their show at the Iron Horse in MA...excellent performances. Jim Hurst really tears it up on guitar. I picked up his CD "A Box Of Chocolates", which is excellent, and features Sam Bush, Wayne Benson, Steve Smith, and even Jim himself all on mandolin.

Samson Grisman is the bass player, and was also part of the opening band The Deadly Gentlemen.

Having seen David's quintet a few times it was refreshing to see him in a trio context...quite different and fresher.

And Grisman plays guitar, too? But it's missing 2 strings!

But he is a string genius, he can get away with it! I'm looking forward to hearing some of this stuff.
