Bela Fleck – Tales From The Acoustic Planet

This is easily one of my all time favorite cd’s. It is comprised of Bela Fleck and a numerous amount of guest players. I would classify this cd as jazzy folk bluegrass. Alot of the songs have very unique instruments like violins, bass clarinets, oboes, which leads to very rich and unique compositions. All the songs on the cd never seem to get old and I can listen to them over and over. One of my favorite songs is “The Great Circle Route” which has an amazing piano part. All the songs seemed to have been worked out to perfection, down to every last detail, which makes listening to the cd more than once great because you pick up on different things going on each time you listen.
