Rare Jerry Garcia Recordings at David Grisman’s Acoustic Oasis
David Grisman, who has released his music for 20 years through his Acoustic Disc label, has created the new website http://acousticoasis.com/. According to Grisman, the site features “new and previously unreleased projects that are now available to you as high-quality digital downloads, exclusively through this site. All projects include downloadable graphics (CD covers, tray cards and labels) and cost is less than most other download sites.”
Acoustic Oasis’s initial offerings include extended versions of Acoustic Disc projects like the 170-minute Extra Large Pizza Tapes with Grisman, Jerry Garcia, as well as Tony Rice Bluegrass Quintet recordings, educational materials and out- of-print albums like jazzmaster Don Stiernberg’s Mandolin Restaurant. The website also features new Oasis recording by Josh Pinkham and Texas swing legend Jerry Thomasson.
