Bob Carlin has developed quite a reputation for himself as one of the leading young players of old-time banjo. His concept was to produce an album of old-time banjo/fiddle duets, and he wanted to feature the best and most compatible fiddlers he could find. He's succeeded totally here, as he's joined by James Bryan, Bruce Molsky, Judy Hyman and Brad Leftwich. There's a real art to banjo back-up for the fiddle. Thanks to the efforts of Bob Carlin and conferees, it won't be a lost art. Crisply played, full of invention but thoroughly traditional, what Carlin does with the old-time 5-string is as much a 'lead' as what the fiddlers are doing in the other stereo channel. Highly recommended for listening fun, and just about essential for students and players of old style fiddle and banjo.' --Bluegrass Unlimited. Contains nine previously unreleased tracks.
