Norman Blake/Tut Taylor/Sam Bush/Butch Robins/Vassar Clements/David Holland/Jethro Burns is a studio album recorded by American musicians Norman Blake, Tut Taylor, Sam Bush, Butch Robins, Vassar Clements, and Jethro Burns and British bassist Dave Holland. It was released in 1975.
From Hank Deane's original liner notes: "Hey, let's do a record in Nashville with everybody. "And Jethro Burns", says Sam. OK, all right, let's do it. I fly to Nashville to see Claude Hill and we do it."
Ken Dryden, in his Allmusic review states the album "...blur[s] the imaginary lines between jazz and bluegrass even further; after all, a good musician in either field should be a great improviser."
