 Notes & Reviews
Banjo powerhouse and Banjo for Dummies author Bill Evans' In Good Company features an all star cast headlined by the Infamous Stringdusters, Tim O'Brien, Joy Kills Sorrow, David Grier, Stuart Duncan, Rob Ickes, Darol Anger, Mike Marshall, Laurie Lewis and many more. This auspicious line-up performs five Evans compositions, a four song, ten-minute Beatles medley and songs pairing Bill with The Infamous Stringdusters (performing John Martyn's Walk to the Water), Joy Kills Sorrow (performing Sarah Siskind's On and On) and Tim O'Brien (performing Follow the Drinking Gourd). The sonic landscape moves from hard-driving bluegrass to expansive new acoustic sounds. 'Bill Evans has outdone himself with this, his latest project. The picking, singing, tune writing and production values are on a ridiculously high level. Bill's ideas are immensely satisfying and fresh. The supporting cast burns up the musical pavement and if there's any justice, Grammy voters will take note!' Tony Trischka
