As the Crow Flies
The fourth album from Green Mountain Grass, As the Crow Flies is far and away the most accurate representation of what this band is all about. It is also an exciting window into a young musical group crossing the threshold into maturity. Recorded entirely in-studio and featuring songs still fresh and free from too much road dust, As the Crow Flies highlights the sophisticated songwriting and stellar instrumental ism Green Mountain Grass is known for... while retaining every bit of the energy of their live performances. Green Mountain Grass has long charmed ears by combining standard bluegrass instrumentation with a songwriting and performance style informed by funk, rock, and jazz. With As the Crow Flies, this sound is given it's truest expression to date. At it's core it is an album of adventure: the listener journeys from town to city, from emotional to spiritual experiences, from melody to ecstacy, and from the lyrical to instrumental. For example, examine "84 Blues", "Oh! Li'l Gal", "Bleuridge", and "Rope".
