Thread: Chris Thile & Michael Daves Duo

  1. #1

    Default Chris Thile & Michael Daves Duo

    Now that we're just a couple of weeks away from the CD release, I thought I'd start a fresh thread with this new Nonesuch Records produced video. There's also a free download of the studio version of this song, and guitar give-away, here.

    Anyway, hoping I could steer this one away from simply, "do you or don't you like/approve of Thile", and into other areas now that we can actually here one cut, and soon, more. For one thing, I'm struck at how totally UN-LIKE 'Skaggs & Rice' this disc is going to be, (based on what I've heard so far) on all levels. And somehow that surprised me, even after hearing them play these past 4 years, or so. In addition to completely different players, and (I'll wager) recording techniques, there's also the D-18 v D-28 divide that really changes the overall sound.

    Excellent DYNAMICS. Exciting music. Spectacular. Worth watching a couple thousand times. What else can I say?

    Thanks for posting this.

    You can hear the studio cuts for "Sleep With One Eye Open" and "Rabbit In a Log" by skipping ahead on the music player in the upper right hand corner of their website here:

    Really great stuff...

    I'm anxiously awaiting my pre-order too. I can't wait.

    I'm always excited to see Chris do something different, although I hope he still keeps the PB going strong, and maybe releases some classical stuff soon.

    I suppose it would be nice to post the other videos here as well?

    I jumped on this pre-order as well. Great sounding music and I am looking forward to the release. I also see that they are scheduled to play in Portland Maine on May 25th. I will have to try to get to that even though it is three and a half hours from me.

    I pre-ordered it as well, as well! I'm pretty excited for it. Chris' mandolin playing has always been a good inspiration for me.. I'm not the biggest fan of the tone Michael uses, but I'm sure I'll get used to it! And I'd like a free Martin guitar. Sounds.. Delicious.

    Cool. I'll start a fresh discussion in this thread about how this ain't no bluegrass and Thile is over-rated

    No, in all seriousness, I'm stoked for this record release. I was showing some of those clips to a guy I play guitar with and after the first one he was already onboard for the pre-order. I'm lookling forward to seeing them up here in Annapolis in May.

    Daves is scary good on the guitar. I guess I must be pretty late to the party because I'd never heard of the fellow till this collaboration. He sings like he's from another era. I'm impressed.

    Got my preorder done early. I can't wait for this. Daves seems to have a unique tone to his voice. Thile is Thile so I know what I'm getting. Hope they tour around me, I'll go see it.

    I think a DVD of this project would be well received. By me, anyway.

    By the way! If you pre-order it from Nonesuch records, you get a free MP3 copy and autographs! Who doesn't love autographs?

    Holy Tortoise Shell, look at them fellers pickin' the fast one, and just being so purty on the slow one. Wow. I'm looking forward to the Annapolis show.

    What an amazing mandolin solo. Tasteful, down right yummy, to the point, respectful of Ira Louvin's original mandolin solo, not competing with it, or emulating it, its all Thile's, no excursions to experimental geographies, no pyrotechnics, but absolutely virtuoso nonetheless. Everything I like. The solo says "listen to this music", not "listen to me".

    But its more than that. Sure it missed every opportunity to suck, but it also augmented and lifted the song. Just beautiful. Just right.

    That was a great solo. I like the way Chris looks lovingly into Daves' eyes whilst singing.

    That's a sweet video (You're Running Wild), and when you include Michael's story, it probably says as much about tradition and innovation, and how they coexist, as any thread on the Cafe.

    +1. I agree with every word of this post.
    The videos from this collection are just remarkable.
    Really looking forward to this one coming out.

    I wish that the CD came with these videos on a DVD. Or maybe a collector's version for a bit more with a DVD?

    These videos are excellent.

    It is certainly fun to watch them as they play. Adds a lot to the music. Interesting the way they augmented that retro look by shooting the video in black and white.

    This is one of the greatest things about these guys: they appear to be having a blast and really enjoying the music.
