Natural Bridge is a perfect title for this recording by Bela Fleck, l'enfant terrible of the five-string banjo. Musically, it forms a very natural bridge between all the stylistic developments which have taken place in banjo picking since the original master, Earl Scruggs, joined Bill Monroe's band and started playing bluegrass music nearly fifty-five years ago. Bela has successfully integrated the styles of innovators such as Don Reno, J.D. Crowe, Bill Keith and Tony Trischka into a total banjo vocabulary.' --David Grisman, from his notes Originally released in 1982. Digitally remastered for CD.
