Jerry Douglas Band

For more than 40 years, Jerry Douglas has made music on dobro and lap steel that’s earned him world renown as the top purveyor of his craft. On his latest musical foray, What If, Douglas decisively merges those jazz inclinations with the bluegrass, country, blues, swing, rock, and soul he’s spent his life absorbing and performing, forging a sound that flies beyond the boundaries of anything he—or anyone else—has done before. Like fellow bluegrass-rooted peers Bela Fleck and David Grisman, Douglas has always balanced respect for tradition with a desire to escape constricting expectations. But there were places even he was afraid to go—until now.
