John Reischman & the Jaybirds, The Road West

"The Road West" is the third outstanding album from John Reischman and the Jaybirds, and a powerful follow-up to the band's JUNO nominated "Field Guide" CD. Known as a world-class mandolinist and composer, John and his long-time playing partners have established a strong musical bond with a unique identity - stellar original songs and instrumentals, and trademark interpretations of old-time numbers. "Together they produce music that is seamlessly excellent", says Sing Out! magazine in one of many accolades earned by the Jaybirds down through the years. Acoustic Guitar Magazine describes the Jaybirds as 'top-notch musicians and singers', with Dirty Linen magazine enthusing over their "gorgeous three-part harmony". "A superb band" adds Vintage Guitar Magazine. "Any argument about John Reischman & the Jaybirds being a leading bluegrass band can be settled by listening to their exceptional third album, The Road West." Billboard February 5, 2005
