ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dick Weissman was a member of the legndary folk-pop group the Journeymen, with Scott
mcKenzie and John Phillips. Over the years he has developed a reputation, as a "respected and original" banjo and guita playing, to quote Portland's Williamette Week.

The Solo album is the first album on which he plays all the parts without additional musicians. There are 11 banjo pieces, 3 guitar pieces, and 1 tunefor 12 string guitar. Scott Mckenzie says "I always loved your banjo playing, but i was amazed at the wide range of your guitar work."

The tunes are all original compositions, and vary between roots-based music, and humorous takes on bluegrass and even flamenco music. the 12 string guitar piece uses an unusual tuning, and come of the string are played individually, not as pairs.

John Keys

Amazing! Banjo as a solo instrument....
I do not think of a banjo as a melodic instrument, but Dick Weissman creates wonderful melodic music. The music includes traditional styles that you would think of with a banjo. You also hear slow blues and ballads that seem to reach out to you. The original music is captivating. The recording is not overpowering. You hear the intricacies of Dick’s banjo and guitar style. This is an excellent addition to any music collection.

P.B.

Great!
It's critical to note that there are not a large number of musicians playing on this project....it's a solo project.

Some of these instrumentals are hauntingly beautiful.....this is good stuff.
