It’s often said of the recently departed but Tony was one of the true greats. Anyone who hasn’t heard him would be best advised to have a listen.
I was first introduced to his playing by another of the the true greats, the late Bill Keith. Tony, inter alia, appeared on Bills record “Something Old, Something Newgrass, Something Borrowed, Something Bluegrass”. One listen and I was hooked. This recording brought together the likes of Tony, David Grisman and Jerry Douglas and became the starting point of a major section of my record collection. If you’re wondering where to start with Tony’s records, I’d recommend “Manzanita”.
