The David Grisman Quintet is a self-styled alternative bluegrass/ acoustic jazz band founded by David Grisman in 1975 in San Francisco, California, USA. Following the Bill Monroe's bluegrass legacy and Django Reinhard's 30s swing, the David Grisman Quintet comes with entirely new style to the acoustic music.[1] With various lineups from 1975, which, among others included guitar virtuoso Tony Rice, multiinstrumentalists Mark O'Connor, Mike Marshall, Darol Anger, Jon Sholle and featured guests as violin genius Stephane Grapelli, this band continues to produce music as of 2009 with the same élan as in 1975.[2][3] The National Public Radio program Car Talk uses the band's instrumental "Dawggy Mountain Breakdown" as its theme music.


The following albums have been released by the David Grisman Quintet:[4][5][6]
