Album Notes
“Texas fiddling takes a wonderful step outside the box on Live at the Cornelia Street Café. Doc Wallace adds fresh angles on some old favorites, and there’s magic and excitement between Doc, Daniel, and Dana that make this CD just fun to listen to!”
—Bruce Molsky, Grammy-nominated fiddler

“Doc’s fiddle playing has a craggy majesty that I associate with Texans. In this live collection, there’s a power and a sense of much more going on farther up the mountain, while simultaneously you are whirled into the joy of what's happening right now. A great musical moment right there in the bar, captured for us any time we might need it.”
—Darol Anger, cofounder, David Grisman Quintet, Turtle Island Quartet

“All hail Doc Wallace, one of my favorite people on earth! A true musical polymath—a fabulous violist, a great Texas fiddler, a writer, historian, teacher, and a repository of knowledge of all things musical. Check out this great recording he did with the Doc Wallace Trio—you will get to spend some virtual time with him. Just don’t be jealous of those of us who are privileged to spend real time with him every day! Welcome to the wonderful kaleidoscopic musical world of Doc Wallace!"
—Matt Glaser, artistic director, American Roots Program, Berklee College of Music

The Doc Wallace Trio has been thrilling listeners with its unique blend of jazzy Texas-style fiddling and swing since their first performance in 1999. The trio’s presenters include Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Midori & Friends, Young Audiences, the New York Philharmonic, HERE Arts Center, and the Levitt Pavilion. Never content to let music remain in the clubs or the concert halls, the Doc Wallace Trio is committed to engagement with underserved communities, and actively brings its artistry to schools, hospitals, psychiatric facilities, homeless shelters, houses of worship, and correctional facilities.

Texas-style contest fiddling is a fusion between traditional fiddling and early jazz. The style emerged during the 1920s and 1930s, when old-time fiddlers took it upon themselves to “improve” the tunes they heard at dance halls, on the radio, and on 78-rpm records. Frequently, towns would hold contests where fiddlers would come from miles away to flaunt their talents, compete for prizes, and jam until sunrise. Once the festivities were over, fiddlers would return home to practice in their woodsheds, kitchens, and living rooms until the next contest came around. Over time, the repertoire grew to include the genres and styles of many diverse cultures and nations. The Doc Wallace Trio takes this rollicking music out of the tin-roofed pavilions and rodeo grandstands of the fiddle contest and gives it new life with their imaginative improvisations and jazzy New York edge.
