Jerry Douglas is an American resonator guitarist, lap steel player and record producer who got the nickname 'Flux' - which has to do with his fluid and flowing finger work. On his latest musical foray, What If, Douglas decisively merges jazz inclinations with bluegrass, country, blues, swing, rock, and soul. He’s spent his life absorbing and performing, forging a sound that flies beyond the boundaries of anything he - or anyone else - has done before. “A lot of what you do as a musician comes from fear; what you think the audience will stand… “I’d come up with the tune, and they would help me take it to some crazy places,” he says. What If, marks the recorded debut of the Jerry Douglas Band. According to Douglas, it’s a real band effort. It might be tricky to play, but for listeners, the operative word - for the whole album - is magic.
