Tennesse Jed: Acoustica

Tennesse Jed is actually John Fisher, an acclaimed singer, songwriter, and guitarist from North Carolina. On Acoustica, Jed combines styles such as folk, bluegrass, country, and Southern Rock, and the 15 songs are littered with hot acoustic guitar picking, fiddle, banjo, organ, Dobro, and mandolin, as well as plenty of soulful vocals. Standout tracks include the Southern boogie of "Struck", the reggae-tinged bluegrass of "Gotta Be Wrong to Be Right" (complete with some great organ, fiddle, and Dobro lines), the furious instrumental workout "Opie's Opus", and the rambling fiddle & banjo soaked tune "Pruning Shears". However, the tastiest piece is "What Some Say", a real sweet Charlie Daniels meets The Marshall Tucker Band styled number featuring some groovy organ, soaring strings, melodic guitars, and Jed's catchy vocals. All told, Acoustica is probably more geared towards the bluegrass and country crowd, but if you can appreciate some skilled instrumental talent within those genres, then give this one a try.
