The Stories of a Musician in Oklahoma
Wow! Fantastic session.. Thanks, Steven!
Man, I've been listening to this for the last week and a half. I'm usually skeptical of CDs sold in Starbucks, but I listened to it on Spotify, and man, is it good.
I too am extremely skeptical of crossover, genre-bending, collaboration-happy intersections of classical and popular traditions. But this one seems to work. I think it is the tremendous technique both in the playing and the organization of the music that makes it interesting. Of course they bring their love of music-making, but it's the "digging in" on it that communicates that to the attentive listener.
