The best dobro playing I ever heard was Jerry Douglas in the late 80s when he toured with Peter Rowan, Mark O'Connor, and Roy Husky. Jerry's power and remarkable improvisatio n s still give me chills. Somewhere I've got a tape of a couple of those shows.. Nothing I've ever heard comes close. There's a cd with that group Crucial Country, many of the tunes accessible on Pandora (just look for Peter Rowan)....bu t the recording pales compared to the live shows.

Check out the Great Dobro Sessions, with Rob, Jerry, and Mike all on the same with more great players and guys that inspired them. Thanks, Jerry for putting that together.

We just need more great dobro players like Rob, Jerry, and Mike and these comparisons could be put to rest. Nobody is as opinionated about guitar players or mandolin players. We just enjoy the variety and styling. those great subtle differences. Style is personality. I've always loved Jerry's music, and am really enjoying the dimension Rob's music adds to my dobro enjoyment. What a great soulful instrument.

I have been listening to Jerry douglas since i was a kid,he played alot around where i grew up and have always loved his music as well as Mike Aldridge.bot h great but different styles.Well for straight Bluegrass Rob has Really caught my attention!!! H e seems to blend with the other instruments perfectly while if you have ever seen Jerry live with Alliason Krause when he plays its almost like a solo cause he just burns it up so much.Love em both!!!Long live Bluegrass!

I also am a dobro player and can tell you that after learning through both Jerry and Rob's instructiona l dvd's that Rob is hands down my favorite and to my ear technically better than douglas. They both are however beter than me and I am glad I have the oppurtunity to listen to them. Long live the dobro.

Great stuff!

As a dobro player and student of all these guys, I feel that Rob is more musical and technically better than Jerry. He has a lower profile. Jerry is great, but it's a "he was there first" phenomenon as much as it is talent. Rob is the favorite of many players because of his musicality, originality, unbelievable technique, and the always engaging nature of his work. He is a very personable and accessible guy and a very good teacher. I prefer listening to his stuff more than Jerry's. Not to

Rob Ickes is great. Jerry Douglas is great. Rob Ickes and Blue Highway are one of the top knotch multitalente d Bluegrass bands recording today.

Who does Ickes play with or is he usually the frontman?

That's so funny Dukejohn, I had it mind to say exactly the same thing when I logged in. Yep, Rob really is great, but until Jerry dies, he's always gonna be second Banana.
Man I bet he gets tired of hearing that!

Rob Ickes (of Blue Highway) can only be beat on Dobro by Jerry Douglas. He's GREAT
