'Beautiful Happiness' sees Jack Rose collaborating with long time pals The Black Twig Pickers to kick out some seriously hardcore barn dance party music. It's a frenzy of guitar finger picking, harmonica wails, sharp string arrangements and some sweet banjo plucking. This seriously rocks out for a Kentucky Bluegrass!!! The playing is super stealth, you'd think they'd been on tour for ever!! Probably have??? Who knows?? Now i don't know a huge amount about Jack Rose other than he played in the group Pelt who we're pretty strange and experimental. Phil tells me that his other releases have been more restrained and drawn out, kinda like John Fahey or one of them types. Well, previous Jack Rose related material is covered on 'Beautiful Happiness' including songs performed with banjo player Twig Mike Gangloff (they have previously performed as a duo) as well as Rose & Family standards such as 'Kensington blues'. I've got to admit to struggling with Bluegrass but this is pretty sweet. It's well executed whilst maintaining a little little roughness around the edges, sorta punk rock Bluegrass as you will. If you wanna know more you'll have to consult the sound clips because it's home time now.
