Bless Yo-Yo Ma and his great good taste in collaborators. I just listened to this whole album on Spotify, and it kind of messed with my evening. I thought I was just spending an evening at home catching up on e-mails and grad school things, but this remarkable musical creation was going on in the meanwhile, and now that it’s done I’m not sure what to do. Anyway, I recommend this, particularly if there’s anyone else out there who listened to Béla Fleck and said “I love this, but I’m not sure it’s a genre that actually exists.”
OH HOORAY live Goat Rodeo Sessions! This is well worth the purchase—“Attaboy” is one of my favorite songs, full stop.
