JOHN BALCH WITH JACK Pearson 'Hot Biscuit Jam'

  • $13.50


Balch has another very nice CD of banjo picking on the market, and this one is equally successful. He picks in a clawhammer style, but it’s a little different from most of the old-time banjo playing that’s available. He makes use of about 9 different tunings in a slightly more formal “parlor” style that also includes very nice backing by Jack and Elizabeth Pearson (guitars, mandolin & 2nd fiddle) and especially fiddler Shad Cobb. The 15 tunes are mostly Balch originals, but include good versions of NEEDLECASE, CUCKOO’S NEST/CHEROKEE SHUFFLE, BONAPARTE’S RETREAT and WHISKEY BEFORE BREAKFAST. Very nice sounds here, and well recommended.
