    This 22-cut sampler culled from the Folk Masters radio show series reflects the program's openness -- bluegrass, klezmer, classic gospel, Western swing, mountain music, blues, Cajun, and traditional jazz are represented, as well as international styles and conjunto. It is a quick musical education and one that should forever shatter stereotyped notions about what does and does not constitute folk music. ~ Ron Wynn
