The Telluride Bluegrass Festival always provides choice covers and collaborations.
This one is no exception!
At different times you’ll hear Mark O’Connor, Jerry Douglas, Bela Fleck, Paul Brady and the New Grass Revival at different times. The Revival are known for departing from bluegrass in their work (they’ve covered “Great Balls of Fire” and “One Tin Soldier”) and were sometime backup for Leon Russell.
Joe Puerta plays a great solo from “Red Plains” into “I Know You Rider”, and Bela Fleck is a treat on “The Road Not Taken”. The recording skips for a second but hopefully not enough to detract from a wonderful performance.
This may be the only time that “Au Privave” (Charlie Parker) has been played at a bluegrass festival.
“Stranger in a Strange Land” is also a highlight.
