For those in the market for some modern and progressive (very progressive) banjo sounds, this record will most likely be of real interest. Evans --who had an earlier record on Rounder --is obviously a very talented picker, and the "cast of thousands" who join him here make up a who's who of modern and new age acoustic pickers. These include David Grier, Mike Marshall, Andy Falco, Chris Pandolfi, Darol Anger, Matt Flinner, Etc. etc. There is a 4 tune Beatles medley (HARD DAY'S NIGHT, LUCY IN THE SKY, etc), and a version of FOLLOW THE DRINKING GOURD with vocal by Tim O'Brien. Otherwise, traditionalists and old fogies like this listener may spend their time in vain searching for some melodies here. We can say that this is a very well produced and attractively packaged CD, and most likely will be a real treat for New Age fans.
