Tommy "GCP" Emanuel & David "Dawg" Grisman: Pickin'

Read "Pickin'" reviewed by Matt Hooke

Listening to Pickin' begs why it took so long for guitarist Tommy Emmanuel and mandolinist David Grisman to collaborate. The album is not a mere showcase for the duo's considerable technical abilities but is a showcase for Grisman's phenomenal songwriting. Grisman wrote every song on the album except the standard “Sweet Georgia Brown," and the Australian ...
