Product Notes

'Dragonfly bubbles with positive energy and coherently covers an impressive range of styles and moods from beginning to end...Arthur has put together one of the best albums of the year!' --Wilton Elder, Program Director, radioioJAM.com '...the substance and confidence you hear through it's 13 cuts is no illusion, but the product of a guy who's hitting his stride not one minute too soon. Dragonfly showcases Land's buoyant concoction.' --David Kirby, Boulder Weekly 'The album is extremely good...Land is coming up with his own acoustic rock sound, at it's best on the title track.' --Stewart Oksenhorn, The Aspen Times '...fresh musical innovation....Lee Land is moving and captures my imagination.' --Paul J. Goetz, The Canyon Current '...Land's uplifting hybrid...an earth-toned blend of djembe, congas and every unplugged bluegrass instrument this side of the jug...well-penned...satisfying long-player.' --John La Briola, The Denver Westword 'Dragonfly is one of my favorite albums!' --Dan Topolski, Jammed Online Music Magazine 'Afrograss folk-rock is an ambitious hybrid combining drumming styles that Land picked up on a trip to West Africa with bluegrass, folk and acoustic rock. It's soulful, spiritual music that's meant to 'open the heart and bring joy into people's lives,' he says.' --Eric Schmidt, Boulder Daily Camera 'The Latest Fusion: Afrograss...it is hard denying that this unique vision has great potential.' --Glenn Burnsilver, Fort Collins Weekly Arthur Lee Land combines diverse influences to create a fresh new musical vibe: Afrograss Folk Rock. Arthur's new 13-song CD Dragonfly is produced by Grammy Award Nominated songwriter and producer Wendy Waldman (Save The Best For Last, John Cowan, New Grass Revival) and features songs co-written with his wife and lyricist Carol Lee. This all-acoustic album gives birth to a new genre, layering West African percussion under some of the finest bluegrass/acoustic musicianship around -- all tastefully encapsulated into infectious original songwriting. Dragonfly features Arthur Lee Land on lead vocals and all guitars; Joe Craven (David Grisman Quintet, Garcia/Grisman) on mandolin, fiddle and percussion; Mark Diamond (Big Swing Trio) on acoustic bass; Scott Babcock (Karla Bonoff) on drums and percussion; Michael Travis (The String Cheese Incident) on djembe/congas; Herb Pederson (Old and In The Grey, Chris Hillman) on banjo; Greg Liesz (Joni Mitchell, K.D. Lang, Bill Frisell) on dobro; Kenny Edwards (Linda Ronstadt, Don Henley, Stevie Nicks) and Wendy Waldman on background vocals.
