It’s spring, which means this acoustic jazz disc makes its annual appearance. Released in 1998, So What gathers up selections recorded by frequent collaborators Jerry Garcia and David Grisman between 1990 and 1992. Flanked by Jim Kerwin (bass), Joe Craven (percussion) and Matt Eakle (flute), the album is comprised of eight tracks riffing on Miles Davis/Milt Jackson along with the Grisman original, “16/16”. Improvisational, cohesive, natural and relaxed, the sixty minute conversation highlights three takes of “So What”, two of “Milestones” and two of Jackson’s “Bag’s Groove.” Far from repetitive. All essential.
