about

This recording was the second release by Kaliedoscope records in 1978, 2 years after the first David Grisman Quintet recording. It featured Anger’s first original material and two newcomers to the Bay Area, Mike Marshall and Barbara Higbie,who went on to work with Anger and others in a panoply of musical groups including Ook N’ M, the Duo, Saheeb, The Montreux Band, Psychograss, the Anger/Higbie Duet, etc.

Fiddlistics was made with Tony, Mike, and Todd (that band's name became (Ook N'M, after an onomatopoeic word suggested by legendary bassist Buell Neidlinger) while Grisman was on the east coast making the soundtrack for and appearing in Frederico DeLaurentis' feature film King Of The Gypsies. This was just prior to starting work on Grisman’s breakthrough recording, Hot Dawg.

'Brann Street Sonata' eventually caught the ear of a young musical entrepreneur named Will Ackerman, and was the impetus for a string of Windham Hill recordings.

'Ride The Wild Turkey' was eventually covered by Jerry Douglas and Alison Krauss, and has become a minor bluegrass standard. This recording features Robert Bowden on banjo.

“Moose The Mooche” marked a historic never-to-be repeated meeting between jazz great Jessica Williams on piano and legendary Texas Swing 5-string electric mandolinist Tiny Moore. DGQ bassist Bill Amatneek played bass.
