Smithsonian Folkways has so much to offer a person of all music loves. This is one of a few recordings I have bought. They all are great. The recordings arn't perfect. Then again they came from the Smithsonian. They have put a lot of work recording these gems. So enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing February 3, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I love the piano and the quality is OK. I do not like all the singing and there was no way to tell that when looking at the artists. When I get a piano CD that is what I want to hear.
