What a wonderful surprise

""Waltz of the Whip-poor-will" is a real delight, kind of like a cool breeze on a warm summer day. As an avid birder and an acoustic music fan, this CD is a two-run homer. I never thought of chickadees singing a polka or whip-poor-will's waltzing, but it all seems so natural now!This CD's flavor is mellow-acoustic, with touches of Celtic (before it was cool), jazzgrass, and even blues. Joe Weed (where are you now?) plays the fiddle, guitar, mandolin, and viola beautifully, and is joined by master talents Todd Phillips (on bass) and David Grisman (mandolin, of course) on several tracks. Stunning quality throughout.If you enjoy innovative acoustic music, you'll love "Waltz of the Whip-poor-will." To quote Darol Anger's comments in the liner notes: "Joe Weed's Waltz of the Whippoorwill is some sweet, sweet acoustic dream- if you hung this music in your kitchen window it'd make rainbows.""
A sound gem for many senses

"charming bouncy clever fresh. Where did this come from and why hadn't I heard it about it before? It doesn't matter if it's not your style, every song is a pleasure. I've given it as a gift too and the comments I get are over the top appreciation. Check it out"
