    On his latest solo album, Traveler, instrumentalist Jerry Douglas joins with folk up-and-comers Mumford & Sons and genre legend Paul Simon for a cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Boxer”. While the original recording is whispery and understated, this version cranks the volume. The song’s momentous buildup reaches a climax when Marcus Mumford (who sings lead on the track) harmonizes with Simon during the “lie la lie” refrain. Douglas’ acoustic arrangement is dense, and he plays with tact befitting such a classic song. -Jon Hadusek
