On their third album, the Bluegrass Album Band
adds some more country-rock to the mix, in the form of the Flying Burrito Brothers
' "Devil in Disguise," but they largely stick to bluegrass classics from the likes of Bill Monroe
and Flatt & Scruggs
. Like the group's two previous albums, Bluegrass Album, Vol. 3: California Connection
is filled with graceful, stunning musicianship that continues to astonish after several listens.
