TAYLOR, HOLLIS and JON ROSE: Infidel
The result of a lifetime of research, Hollis Taylor presents a CD of Hoedowns - traditional fiddle tunes, somewhat adapted and rendered more contemporary by arrangements that include fences, positive organ, camel piano, flies, spoons, banjo, bass, various pianos (played by Rose and a dog), banjo, cello, tenor violin and viola. This is both a scholarly and an inspired record. Eminently listenable, virtuosic, popular, honest and fun. Go on. You'll never hear anything like this again.
