Jim Hurst

I was reminded of keyboard virtuosi: Jelly Roll Morton or Liszt, in the seeming ability to be all parts of an imaginary ensemble at once, and of Arthur Rubinstein in that miraculous efficiency to do it all without moving his fingers. But it isn't just the mind-blowing technique, it's the poetry with which that imaginary ensemble is evoked - Art Tatum quicksilver magic. Thank you Dave Campbell for inviting Jim out to Seattle!

Thanks David & Bluegrass Today!

"... My favorite CD of the year: JHT-1 from the Jim Hurst Trio.

OK, Jim Hurst could play ukulele backed by steel drums and it would probably be somewhere near the top of my list. Here, he’s merely playing some of the best guitar you’ll hear in any genre. (There’s a reason why I called him “Three Hands Hurst” in a review a few years back). That Rice guy is pretty good, but these days, Hurst and folk-rocker Richard Thompson get my vote for the best of the best.

This CD’s greatness, though, is about much more than the bandleader’s glorious talents. He’s joined by Erik Alvar on bass and Nate Lee on fiddle and mandolin. Both are major talents, as evidenced by each of the 11 tracks here, and the three together are magical. The best cuts, to this critic, are Daisies for Judy, which Hurst wrote for his wife, and Modaliousness. Trust me, it’s a lot easier to listen to than to say...."
