Steve Martin, Musician? [VIDEO]

Steve Martin is a musicians musician. Most of the world knows Steve Martin as a comic or an actor. But did you know that Steve is a well respected Blue Grass musician? Check it out,

Steve’s new Blue Grass C.D. has just been released and is already a top seller on the Billboard Hot 100 Albums. This video, although it’s old, it showcases Earl Scruggs, Vince Gill, Marty Stuart and Steve Martin amongst others. I’m am heading to Hastings in the morning to buy my copy of the new “Rare Bird Alert” CD, released Tuesday on Rounder Records, which features the band Steep Canyon Rangers and guests Paul McCartney and the Dixie Chicks.

Filled with deft musicianship and inventive wordplay, the album would seem the product of a long life devoted to writing and recording music. The instrumentals are precisely constructed and performed, and Martin’s lyrics to “Best Love,” “Jubilation Day” and “Atheists Don’t Have No Songs” often offer an oblique, convention-tweaking humor that will remind longtime fans of some of his standup routines from the 1970s. (Another calling card from that period is here as well, as Martin and the Rangers present a banjo-laden version of Martin’s Top 20 comedy hit “King Tut.”) Martin does a little singing on the album, but he leaves most of the vocal duties to the Rangers and his guests.
