Synopsis

Album Description
What sounds like a small choir of mandolins playing bass lines, chordal accompaniment, and tremolo melodies is in fact nothing except Evan Marshall all by himself. Which would not mean much in this Age of the Overdub except for one astounding fact: Marshall plays all this music live, at once, on one mandolin, with no overdubs at all. That's four tiny pairs of strings and one flatpick, plus a stray finger or ten. These feats of the impossible are something like what Chet Atkins does on guitar -- Atkins, in fact, praises Marshall as "one of the few great musicians of our time." Produced and engineered by David Grisman.

Marshall Makes Magic!
Joan C. Rosenbusch | 07/21/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The fact that "Mandolin Magic" is Evan Marshalls first solo CD is not an evident fact when one is listening to it. The songs he plays and the mere way he plays them are enrapturing, captivating things. This work is one created by a fine and experienced musician and it is a delight to hear every blissful note he plays! Such a varient and entertaining arrangement of songs has never been put together nor so well done. Lets give kudos to Marshall by buying this CD!"
