Album Notes
"This CD goes into my very small collection of 'the best of the best' albums."
-- Lloyd Green

JayDee Maness is one of the true living legends of the pedal steel guitar and has had an influence on an entire generation of steel players.

“From Where I Sit” marks JayDee’s first solo album and reflects a true master of the instrument at the top of his game. The album includes JayDee’s personal take on many of the hit songs that featured his playing on the original recordings, a few of his own compositions, and some other favorite tunes. “From Where I Sit” is made further special by the guest musicians including Albert Lee, John Jorgenson, Greg Leisz, Herb Pedersen, Jim Christie, Maria Martinez, Cary Park, Peter Freiberger, Harry Orlove, and Skip Edwards, who also produced the album. JayDee’s stirring version of “Sin City” reunites all his fellow musicians from the Desert Rose Band: Chris Hillman, Herb Pedersen, John Jorgenson, Steve Duncan and Bill Bryson.

One of the steel greats, JayDee has played on many seminal recordings including Gram Parsons' International Submarine Band, The Byrds’ "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" (which is noted as a landmark album that set the stage for the country rock movement), Ray Stevens' "Misty," and Eric’s Clapton’s Grammy Award-winning "Tears in Heaven."

In addition to being a founding member of the Desert Rose Band, JayDee was also a member of Buck Owens' famed backup band, the Buckaroos, and has toured with Vince Gill and Ray Price.

JayDee’s credits read like a virtual “who’s who” of the country, pop and rock worlds including Anne Murray, Barry Manilow, Beck, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Hank Williams, Jr., Dwight Yoakam, Fats Domino, Ray Price, Neil Diamond, Ringo Starr, Merle Haggard, Karen and Richard Carpenter, Randy Travis, Graham Nash, and Jose Feliciano, among many others.

Additionally, JayDee’s playing can be heard on countless TV and film scores such as "Dukes of Hazzard," "Matlock," "The Jazz Singer," "Every Which Way But Loose," "The Longest Yard," "Dynasty," "The Fall Guy," "Murder She Wrote," and "Rush," just to name a few.

From Where I Sit, by Jay Dee Maness: review
Jay Dee’s style is his own. He does not mimic other steel players. Some people in this life have the opportunity to achieve perfection in something, and Jay Dee has done just that with the Steel guitar. I thoroughly enjoy his new CD!
