Frank Vignola & David Grisman: Frank’n’Dawg – Melody Monsters
Frank Vignola (Blues for a Gypsy – Acoustic Disc ACD 43) and David Grisman have been friends and musical cohorts for years, and the time had come for them to collaborate on a special collection of acoustic duet performances of some of their favorite melodies from the Great American Songbook. Remarkably, these 14 tunes were all chosen, arranged and recorded (live to 2-track analog) in one day.
Frank’n’Dawg are both great admirers of melody and wanted that to be the focus of this project – without sacrificing either spontaneity or groove. These finely-crafted melodies are once again reborn as mandolin-guitar duets, both timeless and timely.
