This album is from the folk/rock side of Trout Fishing in America and includes special guest appearances by Vassar Clements, Jerry Douglas, Tim O'Brien, and Mickey Raphael. Genre: Folk: Folk Pop. Release Date: 1999. With Closer To The Truth, TFIA aims for an older market, yet a not-so-subtle whiff of naivete and humor dominates the music. The pair are obviously musically talented, whether or not one appreciates their wit. Assisted by Jerry Douglas, Vassar Clements, and Tim O'Brien, Idlet and Grimwood balance Closer To The Truth with a handful of 'serious' songs, such 'there You Go' and 'Big Boys in Bad Shape.

Trout Fishing in America is the long-standing musical partnership of Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet. The name taken from a Richard Brautigan novel, seems almost as incongruent and intriguing as a picture of this musical duo - Ezra Idlet (guitar) stands six feet nine inches and Keith Grimwood (bass), five feet five and one half inches. What is more intriguing is the musical career these two have carved out in three decades of writing, recording and performing together.

Another release for adults, Closer to the Truth followed in 1999. It was only a brief reprieve from family-oriented material, though, and the duo returned in 2001 with Infinity, followed by It's a Puzzle two years later. Trout Fishing in America's 12th release arrived in 2004, a holiday album titled Merry Fishes to All that earned the duo their second Grammy nomination. My Best Day arrived in 2006, featuring live renditions of old and new songs; it, too, earned the band a Grammy nomination, and Trout Fishing in America returned in 2008 with a homemade album entitled Big Round World.

These imaginative and perceptive songs of Idlet and Grimwood's are filled with thoughtful lyrics, powered by wit, humor and stellar musicianship. Guest appearances by Jerry Douglas, Vassar Clements, Tim O'Brien & Mickey Raphael. Free Shipping is 1st Class US Mail. Priority Mail arrives within 2 or 3 days after we send shipping notification.
