ROUNDER BANJO EXTRAVAGANZA 'Rounder Banjo Extravaganza'

  • $13.50


Recorded live at a series of 4 concerts in Virginia and Maryland in late 1991, this interesting disc presents the talents of three contemporary 5-string banjoists from the Rounder Records stable, backed by a band made up of David Grier, Barry Mitterhof, and Mark Schatz. Apart from the first and last tunes(BANJO SIGNAL and EARL'S FAREWELL BLUES) which the 3 take turns with, the disc is made up almost exclusively of the artists original tunes some of which work out better than others. Standing out is the tough and dynamic picking of Tom Adams on 3 good tunes and an excellent TYSON'S DREAM by Tony Furtado. There is also a David Grier guitar tune and a couple of frailing banjo pieces by Mark Schatz which help the show by providing a nice change of pace. An interesting and enjoyable program.
