Vassar Clements- Greensleeves

The Music Is Over

Fiddler Vassar Clements played with a startlingly wide range of musicians, from Bill Monroe to the Rolling Stones, before his death in August. While he's best known for his bluegrass work, I've always been partial to his jazz recordings. Vassar called this music "hillbilly jazz." In this loose 1993 session he works out a timeless tune with guitarist John Abercrombie, bassist Dave Holland and drummer Jimmy Cobb.
