Song Premiere: The Jerry Douglas Band “Cavebop”
June 07, 2017
Jerry Douglas will return with What If, a new collection of songs that combines many of the genre-bending artist's influences from bluegrass to country, blues, swing, rock and soul. The album spans Douglas' vast musical history including songs co-written with Bela Fleck and covers of Billy Roberts' folk tune "Hey Joe" that also became famous thanks to Jimi Hendrix.
Today, we premiere a new song from that record "Cavebop" available to stream below.
As Douglas tells Relix, “‘Cavebop’ is an experiment employing Bebop Jazz improv with a dash of Bluegrass for good measure. Fred Flintstone meets Charlie Parker.”
The tracklisting and Douglas' upcoming tour dates appear below the stream.
What If Tracklisting:
"Cavebop" "Unfolding" "2:19" "What If" "Hey Joe" "Battle Stick" "Go Ahead and Leave" "Butcher Boy" "Freemantle" "The Last Wild Moor" "Hot Country 84.5"
