Product Description

There’s a lot going on in this excellent new album by Block—a stalwart of Alison Krauss’ Union Station band for many years now. Young and aspiring Bluegrass banjo pickers could gain a lot by checking out the variety in the tunes Block has chosen— from the moody CALICO and MUSTANG BLUES to the hard driving Bluegrass standards: CLINCH MOUNTAIN BACKSTEP, LONESOME ROAD BLUES, HOME SWEET HOME and a solid workout on YOU ARE MY SUNSINE (featuring Scruggs style tuners). There are also fine versions of some great traditional tunes like SPOTTED PONY, SENECA SQUARE DANCE and BRUSHY FORK OF JOHN’S CREEK. There’s a lovely treatment of GENTLE ANNIE as well, and it still leaves plenty of room for 7 of Block’s own compositions. Block has brought in a generous number of top-flight musicians to back his banjo picking— these include Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Jerry Douglas (dobro), Dan Tyminski (guitar), and Sam Bush, Sierra Hull and Adam Steffey all taking various mandolin parts in a solid but uncluttered program. Block’s newer tunes here include SMARTVILLE, CARTER’S CREEK PIKE, MOONEY FLAT ROAD and the title tune. It’s all instrumental, and all good.
