Throughout his career, mandolinist David Grisman has performed music that crosses between many boundaries, from “new acoustic” folk to bluegrass and swing-oriented jazz. This set features Grisman’s string group (which also includes violinist Darol Anger, Mike Marshall on mandolin, guitar and violin, Mark O’Connor on violin and guitar, and bassist Rob Wasserman) playing six of Grisman’s diverse originals, an obscure tune, and a brief rendition of John Coltrane’s “Naima.” The music is excellent, but Grisman’s more jazz-oriented projects would be in the future.

In early 1980 David Grisman recorded the first of four studio albums for Warner Brothers Records. Quintet ‘80 introduced a newly formed quintet featuring multi-instrumentalists Mike Marshall and Mark O’Connor, bassist Rob Wasserman and founding member Darol Anger on violin and cello. The original LP has been out of print for nearly three decades and this Deluxe Edition presents all of the original master takes plus five previously unissued alternate takes, all newly transferred to the highest quality sound format available (24 bit, 96khz) at Acoustic Oasis.
