American Legacies

American Legacies by Del McCoury
Released: Apr 2011
Label: McCoury Music/RED
The bluegrass giant and his band join forces with the legendary New Orleans institution for a set of old-timey, undeniably happy (even during the slow, sad ones) tunes from the American songbook. Not surprisingly, "Jambalaya" is a major highlight, but the juxtaposition of bluegrass and New Orleans-style horns makes "Banjo Frisco" a pretty interesting hybrid. It doesn't hurt that, as is the case with everything on here, it's fun as hell to listen to.
