Product Description

This west coast fiddler has become known for her work with Kathy Kallick and other California musicians— and in fact there is a whole raft of names mentioned in the credits for this excellent album. Some of these include Peter Rowan, Patrick Sauber, Ivan Rosenberg, Paul Shelasky and John Reischman. Ms. Staninec has chosen an interesting, well selected group of 13 songs and tunes that range from Cajun to Bluegrass, to Old Time. The 2 cajun pieces (MADALINE and PLANTE DANS LA PORTE DE MA MAISON) are pleasant but maybe the least successful tunes on the record, but the following are noteworthy and more than worth the price of the album: fine old time versions of ROCKY ISLAND, SHADY GROVE, and the seldom recorded STEELEY RAG, (an old Texas piece evidently learned from a classic 1920s recording by A.L. Steeley). The CD kicks off with a with the intriguing and unexpected choice of a classic old time sacred harp hymn, LONG TIME TRAVELIN’, with 5 singers led by Ms. Staninec and including Chris Coole, Kathy Kallick and John Reischmann. That is followed by a lovely version of the Jim & Jesse song JUST WONDERING WHY sung by Peter Rowan. And also notable is an uptempo arrangement of MAN OF CONSTANT SORROW on which Ms. Staninec sings lead and plays a nice fiddle. There is even a tune played on uillelean pipes by Michael Connolly with fiddle accompaniment (SHALLOW BROWN). There’s a lot to recommend this well produced and very interesting recording.
