Grateful Dead Hour by David Gans

Week of June 28, 2010

An interview with mandolin legend David Grisman on the occasion of the release of The Pizza Tapes (Extra Large Edition) - an amazing jam session with Grisman, Jerry Garcia, and guitarist Tony Rice.

Mandolin Abstractions, featured in this hour, is a wonderful album of improvisations. Grisman and Andy Statman went into the station and just started playing - no songs, no plan, just improvising. I love it.
