Take a dash of jazz, a pinch of bluegrass, and a heaping spoonful of world music, and you have the remarkable new CD release, NOT ALL WHO WANDER ARE LOST, featuring the sounds of mandolin master Chris Thile. Accompanied by various guest artists, Chris Thile and his mandolin are showcased on this lively 12 selection collection.
Chris Thile and his mandolin roam and play through such great songs as "Song For A Young Queen," "Wolfcreek Pass," "Raining At Sunset," "Riddles In The Dark," "Big Sam Thompson," among others. Thile reveals his unique talents and versatility on the fun-filled harmonics of "Club G.R.O.S.S.," and a highly sensitive approach to such songs as "Laurie De' Tullins" and "Bridal Veil Falls."
One of the most complex and unique songs on this CD is "Wolfcreek Pass." "Eureka!" and the imaginative "Riddles In The Dark" are winners, too!
Chris Thile is a master of the jazz mandolin. It will be interesting to see what imaginative ideas he achieves when he does a CD collection of jazz standards. His musical perspective and composing skills are in topnotch form.
If you are looking for something entertaining and enjoyable as a gift for a friend, get that friend a copy of Chris Thile's NOT ALL WHO WANDER ARE LOST. This CD will appeal to a wide listening audience.
NOT ALL WHO WANDER ARE LOST beautifully overflows musically with creativity and joy. Excellent. Stellar performances!
