ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For our seventh recording, we’ve chosen material to showcase the signature Jaybirds blend of old-time and bluegrass music, but this time with an added emphasis on the bluesier side of bluegrass and a surprise foray into the Beatles songbook for good measure.

For instrumentals, we have four originals, including two great new tunes from John- Daylighting the Creek and Red Diamond, Nick’s up-tempo Wellesley Station, and Thistletown, a waltz by Greg’s wife Caridwen. Rounding out the instrumental selections is a rollicking old-time tune -Katie Bar the Door.

Our original vocal numbers include Jim’s Home’s Where I Long To Be – a song about feeling homesick for familiar surroundings – and Gonna Walk, which captures a broken-hearted take on a relationship that’s gone bad. Trisha’s gorgeous song, I Don’t Want To Say Goodbye, is dedicated to the memory of her father.

A selection of gospels and covers rounds out the recording. For quartets, we have You’ve Got To Righten That Wrong, and Don’t You Hear the Lambs a-Crying. Green Pastures, Larry Sparks’s blues-inflected spiritual, and Today Has Been Lonesome Day, are two of the first songs we ever worked up as a band. Finally we have a song from the Beatles, a lesser-known gem from the “Let it Be” album which our friend Butch Baldassari always said would make a good bluegrass cover – Two Of Us. Sure enough!

Joe Ross, Roots Music Report

One of the most engaging and dynamic acts in the western bluegrass scene
From Vancouver, B.C., mandolinist John Reischman’s early band experience included stints with the Good Old Persons, Tony Rice Unit, Kathy Kallick’s Little Big Band and Kate MacKenzie and Frontline. He’s released several highly acclaimed solo albums with guest artists, as well as some Latin projects with guitarist John Miller. In 2000, Resichman formed his own band called The Jaybirds and released their first self-titled album. Now, “On That Other Green Shore” is the band’s seventh album. Besides Resichman, band members include Trisha Gagnon (bass), Nick Hornbuckle (banjo), Jim Nunally (guitar) and Greg Spatz (fiddle). Patrick Sauber appears on three tracks. Being way out west might affect the national attention that this bluegrass band gets. However, this solid group hasn't undergone personnel changes for years, and they keep their presentation tight, cohesive and enthusiastic. The group’s musical territory and verve incorporate bluegrass and old-time elements on instrumentals, vocals, gospel and covers. “On That Other Green Shore” is another strong, tastefully-rendered project that reinforces their place as one of the most engaging and dynamic acts in the western bluegrass scene.
