  • $13.50


It seems like ages ago that this fan—along with many others—was so highly impressed with Chris Warner’s work in Jimmy Martin’s band, where his crisp and dynamic banjo playing was right in the same league with other great pickers who worked with Martin before that: J.D. Crowe, Bill Emerson, Vic Jordan and Alan Munde. We lost track of Warner in the years that followed, but we’re glad to see him on the scene again (he did have a few great cuts on Geoff Stelling’s fine Stelling Banjo Anthology (REB-1815, $ 13.50) a couple of years ago). He pretty much shares this album with Tom Adams, who plays guitar and provides the lead singing. Others on the 14-track album include Michael Cleveland and Patrick McAvinue on fiddle, Steve Street on bass and Mark Seitz and Dick Laird on mandolin. About half the songs are instrumentals—these include LEAVIN’ TOWN from the Jimmy Martin days and a nice fiddle& banjo duet with Michael Cleveland on TURKEY BUZZARD.
