    Bluegrass fans may want to zero in on this particular album, as it was banjo whiz Tony Trischka's first shot at paying tribute to his traditional roots, done at a time when his reputation had been clearly established as an avant-garde or progressive bluegrass player. His former student Bla Fleck helped produce some of the sessions, and put together a lineup of players that would require several vans to haul around. The recordings are done to a turn, with the sound of the acoustic instruments positively shimmering. Actually, most of the tunes are Trischka originals, with only one traditional number, and the effort to create tunes in a more standard bluegrass vein pays off with what has proven to be some of his most memorable composing efforts. "New York Chimes" is delightful. ~ Eugene Chadbourne
