Matt Glaser, who heads of the violin department at the New England Conservatory of Music, has gathered together some of the best players in the Boston area to accompany him on this collection of swing fiddle in 'a variety of settings.' Play, Fiddle, Play features swing arrangements of Flatt & Scruggs' 'Cabin in Caroline' and 'Foggy Mountain Special,' traditional old-time fiddle tunes ('Turkey in the Straw'), such standards as Gershwin's 'Lady Be Good' and more. Eighteen fiddlers, four saxophonists, three trumpeters, two trombonists, one guitarist, one banjoist, two mandolinists, an accordion player, two pianists, three bassists, a drummer, a percussionist, and one singer, join Glaser for an album of some of the finest fiddle music ever recorded!
