Pete Wernick & FLEXIGRASS have been getting rave reviews of their brand new CD, What The (Niwot Records). This inspired combination takes its ingredients from the best of bluegrass, swing and modern jazz. Pete’s clear ringing banjo rolls, set over agile drums, trades licks with clarinet master Bill Pontarelli and dazzling young vibraphonist Greg Harris. Joan Wernick adds vocals from serious to sassy, leading the band through classic songs and new originals by Pete.
Here’s a brand new video of cut #1, “Blue Train”, which shows the band in action! FLEXIGRASS puts its own spin on this Bluegrass Song of the Year from 1992. It has a great vocal performance from Joan, a grooving arrangement, and some tasty picking, indeed.
