    The familiar is as classy as ever.

    Few musicians ever achieve such complete dominance and superiority on their instrument as Jerry Douglas: not a single voice is raised in challenge to Douglas's mastery of the dobro. This latest, guest-laden album shows why.

    Adventurous roots-music aficionados will want to book themselves a date for Traveler, a masterfully planned Dixieland journey that lets the good times roll easy.

    He's equally adept at almost any kind of music.

    His latest is a nicely varied set. [Oct 2012, p.97]
  7. For all the virtuosity in his fingers, Jerry is no singer, and this collection of tasteful exhibits needs faces [guest singers]. The faces save the record.

    As always, he continues to exhibit flawless technique and taste, but Traveler seems to lack some of the adventure he has exhibited live and on previous solo albums. A solid selection of cover tunes shine the brightest among a "hit and miss" selection of original instrumentals.
