Come hear the sounds of inspiration in the David Grisman FolkJazz Trio's debut. After attending one of guitarist/vocalist extraordinaire Jim Hurst's remarkable solo performances, David was inspired to form this trio, with Jim and David's son Samson Grisman on bass, to explore some of their common roots in folk, country and jazz.

A brilliant mandolinist who has forged his own inimitable musical path, David is known far and wide for his "dawg" music, a jubilant, highly intricate, harmonically advanced hybrid of many different stylistic influences (swing, bluegrass, Latin, jazz, gypsy). In addition to his own renowned groups including David Grisman Quintet, Old and In the Way, and the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience (DGBX), David has recorded more than 40 albums (five of which won Grammy nominations) with everyone from the Grateful Dead to Bonnie Raitt.

Influenced by the likes of Merle Travis, Chet Atkins, and many others, Kentucky-born Jim's finger-style playing, musical compositions, and groundbreaking arrangements reference country, bluegrass, blues, and jazz. He has played stints with Holly Dunn's Rio Band, Trisha Yearwood, Sara Evans, Travis Tritt, Claire Lynch, and Missy Raines, the award-winning bassist.

Bassist Samson has been playing gigs most of his life, as you might imagine. In addition to playing in DGBX, Samson plays double bass in the Deadly Gentlemen, a self-described "epic folk and grasscore" band.
