Just as the title implies, “This, That, And The Other” offers up a variety of music from Marty Raybon and his band. The 13 cuts, along with a bonus track (“Any Ol’ Stretch Of Black Top”), showcase the country, bluegrass, and gospels sides of Marty and perhaps underline the point that good music doesn’t need to be labeled.

Produced by Raybon, Marty once again demonstrates his untouchable vocal interpretations on songs such as the piano ballad “You Get Me.” He chisels out his own version of a couple of George Jones covers, “Ain’t Love A Lot Like That” and the humorous “Nothing Ever Hurt Me (Half As Much As Loving You).” He belts out hard-drivin’ ’grass on the opener, “Leavin’ On The Next Thing Smokin’,” and croons a silky-smooth snappy take on the a cappella, “Didn’t It Rain Rain Children” about the great Biblical flood.

Marty’s Full Circle Band—Chris Davis (mandolin), Daniel Grindstaff (banjo), Glenn Gibson (resonator guitar), and Jayd Raines (bass)—step center stage with tasteful fills, solid timing, and subtle melodious nuances that embellish Marty’s impeccable performance.
