Editorial Reviews

The problem with too many gifted European bluegrass artists is that they are simply too much in awe of the American masters to rise above the level of facile copy bands. Not so with Czech newgrass banjo maestro Lubos Malina, best known as a member of the celebrated Czech Republic bluegrass band Druha Trava. Admittedly there are moments on Piece of Cake, Malina's dazzling, accomplished second solo album, when the ubiquitous influence of American banjo masters Tony Trischka and Bela Fleck shines through a little too brightly. In fact, both Trischka and Fleck, along with Peter Rowan and various other luminaries, make guest appearances on Piece of Cake. Yet Malina masterfully leads his distinguished guests through a range of moods and styles that often collide and intermingle with stark originality. Standouts include the haunting, traditional Kentucky-style bluegrass ballad "Rain and Snow," the newgrass instrumental ruminations of "Remembering," the jazz-grass improv of "Baflo Breakdown," and the Eastern European-flavored "Gejza and Berta," on which Malina is backed by the Gypsy band Tockolotoc. --Bob Allen

Format: Audio CD
If your taste in Bluegrass tends to the traditional, this recording may open your ears in delightful and unexpected ways. If you have already experienced & enjoy Bluegrass as interpreted by various musicians around the planet, this recording will add depth and dimension to your Bluegrass vocabulary. There are 13 selections on this gem, and no two show the same facet. I'm a fairly experienced listener, but not until hearing "In The Not So High Mountains" (track 10), had I ever really heard -- for lack of a better description -- blues bagpipes. Davy Spillane takes the Uillean Pipes to new heights in this Lubos Malina original. There is a pervasive "outside the box" feeling throughout the album. ...
I took a chance on this CD as I had never heard of Lubos Malina. ... I am championing it here in this venue because the listening experience is very worthwhile -- and unless your luck was similar to mine, you may not find it anywhere other than online or in a specialty store.
If you can appreciate ... other musicians who can play in traditional idiom while at the same time elegantly breaking the ground rules, you will enjoy this recording.
-- Max.

Great Album - if you enjoy this type of music do not forget that Lubos is a member of one of the most popular Czech groups - Druha Trava. They even played for the US President when he visited the Czech Republic.
