WHEN I PLAY I TRY TO BE TRUE TO THE GENRE I’M PLAYING IN.The album offers a fascinating glimpse of John’s ability to cross from one genre to the other without compromising the integrity of the individual tunes.
“I wanted to record the types of music that I liked playing the best: bluegrass, Latin, and string jazz . . . When I play I try to be true to the genre I’m playing in,” says John. Bluegrass Unlimited magazine calls it a “monumental” album that “establishes a remarkably high standard for mature, tasteful mandolin music,” while Dirty Linen magazine termed it a “refreshingly varied and impeccably recorded release that showcases Reischman’s chops to good effect.”
Monumental breadth of talent and musical awareness . . . establishes a remarkably high standard for mature, tasteful mandolin music.
Refreshingly varied and impeccably recorded release that showcases Reischman’s chops to good effect.
A whirlwind musical tour of the Americas . . . the music is subtle, performed to perfection, and with dazzling skill.
One of the most fun and inventive mandolin albums in some time.
