The Complete Tone Poems Vol. 2

In 1975 guitarist Tony Rice joined mandolinist David Grisman to form the ground-breaking David Grisman Quintet. During the next four years they created music that would change the direction of acoustic music.

When David conceived of a project that would showcase the sounds of vintage guitars and mandolins, Tony was the guitarist he invited. In January 1993 they spent a week in Dawg Studios recording 17 tunes, utilizing 34 different instruments to create Tone Poems.

The 230-minute Complete Tone Poems includes all of their performances (54 alternate takes and 9 alternate tunes) recorded for Tone Poems and offers a glimpse of the personal process that produced this unique project.
