Led by 14-time Grammy Award-winning musician Jerry Douglas, The Jerry Douglas Band will release their debut album, What If, on August 18th. The new project merges jazz with bluegrass, country, blues, swing, rock, and soul on eleven tracks filled with bold arrangements and unexpected elements. One such song is Douglas’ rendering of Tom Waits’ “2:19.” A funky revelation, the song drips with soul courtesy of some dynamic horn-work and Douglas’ bluesy vocals.
