Infectious. Buoyant. Joyful. Allen Shelton is one of the banjo's pioneers, a musician who takes on bluegrass romps and sophisticated swing tunes with equal zest. His long-term tenure with Jim & Jesse McReynolds and exuberant, swinging sound - known to banjo fans around the globe as the 'Shelton bounce' - made him one of the pillars of his instrument. Shelton Special, his first solo album, originally released in 1977, featuring nimble mandolin work by Jesse McReynolds and detailed notes by Tony Trischka, is a bluegrass classic and at long last available on CD.
