Entertainment Reviews:

Option - 5-6/93, p.95
"...Sweet, light, swinging jazz standards [on ONCE IN A WHILE]....Clements has a bluegrass background that makes a jam session like this pure fun..."
Musician - 9/93, p.78
"...ONCE IN A WHILE is a decidedly swinging affair, teaming the fiddler with a no-nonsense rhythm team...his soaring melodies and coy interplay prove that styles don't clash--only people..."

Violinist Vassar Clements has demonstrated the improvisatory link between bluegrass and jazz, and this was another example of the two styles' affinity. Clements' soaring phrases and adept solos were right at home on such standard jazz tunes as "Perdido," "Cherokee" and "Sonnymoon For Two," but he didn't stray far from his favorite breakdown riffs or signature country sound. The results were the kind of loose, joyous jam date where labels meant nothing, and musicianship rather than genre ruled. ~ Ron Wynn
