If you like the bluegrass, you might be interested in the new Bryan Sutton CD, Not Too Far From the Tree.  It's a duets album in which Bryan plays a mix of standards and lesser known stuff with such luminaries as Norman Blake, Dan Crary, Tony Rice, Doc Watson, Jerry Douglas, etc.  I listened to about half of it in the car this morning and really liked it.  It's nice and understated, with great playing but with no excess flash, just the way I like bluegrass guitar duets.

He also plays a tune with his father, which is nice.

I just read a review of the album this morning in Guitar Player magazine. The reviewer liked it a lot.

It was that review that twigged me to the album.  You have to be careful with the reviews in GP, but this one was on the mark.

Thanks for the review. I'll look for this CD. Sutton is a remarkable player. I have a DVD with him, Tim Stafford, and Jim Hurst. Those guys are scary good players.

This one is pretty laid-back, without a lot of pyrotechnics.  That was apparently his aim in making it.
