  • $13.50


“Shufflin’” The excellent fiddler Richard Greene is joined by Paul & Loren Barton (on mandolin & guitar) as well as Jeff Pekarek on acoustic Bass on this very enjoyable & musical disc that combines elements of old-time, Bluegrass and jazz. There are only 9 tracks (all instrumental), but three of them are over 5 minutes long, so there’s really no shortage of playing here. As on his three wonderful albums for Rebel several years ago, Greene adds his own distinctive touches to the old tunes, as well as providing skilled and tasteful work on the newer, jazzier tunes (SINAI SUMMIT, TIPIOSHI BREAKDOWN and the title tune). For this listener the most enjoyable tracks are great versions of YEARLINGS IN THE CANEBREAK, and the unusual BANKHEAD BLUES and STEELEY RAG. Plenty of imaginative playing here.
