At this point, I was eager to play some of the music I was writing that wasn’t really appropriate for the bluegrass lineup of instruments. I put together a band called ‘Banjo Jazz’ that played occasionally in Nashville when I was off the road. We went on one or two very short tours, but it was just too tough to make touring happen, and the band parted. Many of the tunes on Inroads feature ‘Banjo Jazz’. Vibes was an unusual instrument to combine with banjo. I also had New Grass Revival together for track called Four Wheel Drive, and some other great cameos.
