Earl Scruggs - Earl Scruggs and Friends (2001) Retail CD
Earl Scruggs is widely credited for widening the appeal of the banjo to non-country audiences, and his virtuosity has attracted legions of celebrity admirers, several of whom appear on Earl Scruggs and Friends. Scruggs--a former member of Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys--was one of the creators of the classic bluegrass sound, but his career has been marked by his willingness to break beyond tradition. On Earl Scruggs and Friends, the five-string banjo player teams up with a number of artists and songwriters from pop and country, with mixed results. Though Scruggs' playing is never less than flawlessmore…, the restrained personality of his banjo picking sometimes gets swamped by the megastar personalities of singers like Elton John, Melissa Etheridge and Sting, where he's relegated to little more than session musician (albeit an excellent one). Country and bluegrass is his first love, and it's when he performs with other country and roots artists that his skills truly shine. Dwight Yoakam yodels and yelps his way through "Borrowed Love" (which was written specifically for this collection), John Fogerty lends his distinctive voice to the country standard "Blue Ridge Mountain Blues" and Don Henley and Johnny Cash perform an atmospheric "Passin' Thru". The two instrumentals, meanwhile, provide the perfect showcase for Scruggs phenomenal talent, especially on "Foggy Mountain Breakdown", where an all-star line-up that includes Vince Gill, Marty Stuart, Albert Lee and comedian Steve Martin perform this banjo standard at breakneck speed. --Robert Burrow
