Andy Leftwich—the young fiddler for Ricky Skaggs’ Kentucky Thunder group—is a huge talent, as is evident from this solo debut album, as well as his appearances with Skaggs. That being said, I wonder how many others will be a bit disappointed by this disc, mainly because of the selection of material. All but two of the tunes are Leftwich compositions and few stand out: the program seems to cry out for a few recognizable “standards” that would nicely frame some of the better originals. Hopefully, Leftwich’s next recording will follow the example of another Skaggs’ alumnus, Bryan Sutton, whose second release was so much more impressive than his first solo effort. Leftwich plays fine mandolin as well as fiddle. FAULTLINE, SHARK TOOTH, BREAKPOINT, SHINING WATERS, MINOR SWING, SLATERVILLE, etc.
