I am usually somewhat skeptical about albums that feature all original material, especially all-instrumental albums. But here mandolinist Reischman pulls it off very nicely, with adequate variety, some very nice melodies, clean & tasteful picking, and a fine supporting cast. There are a total of nine guest musicians helping Reischman here, but don't let that fool you because the tracks are not cluttered, he is usually backed on a tune by just one or two instruments, sometimes just a guitar. Those taking part include Dennis Caplinger(banjo,fiddle), Rob Ickes(dobro), Kathy Kallick(guitar), and Todd Phillips(bass). Tunes range from old-timey to Monroe-styled with twin fiddle. Good job & recommended. BLUEGRASS SIGNAL, EIGTHOF FEBRUARY, LOW GAP, INDIANA FIREFLY, THE NORTH SHORE, GREENWOOD, etc.
