"It's kind of hard to pin down, because there's so much on it," Tony Trischka says of his new Rounder album Great Big World. "It's all over the place, which is kind of where I live."

In a consistently adventurous musical career that spans nearly half a century, Tony Trischka has established himself as both a wildly inventive recording artist and one of ... Read more in Amazon's Tony Trischka Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - Old Yet New May 4, 2010
By Man
Format:Audio CD
When I first bought this album I didn't really like it. It was so different from the Scruggs/Reno/Rice/Fleck stuff, I had trouble relating to it. The whole album is in a different musical and emotional vocabulary. I listened to it more and more, and now it stands alone in my collection.

The album is a journey into the roots of the banjo, exploring the cultural memories and landscapes - territories - that lie dormant within bluegrass.

This is not a 'historical re-enactment' album - there is some cutting-edge picking at times. But think of it as a view from the present into the imagined pasts that subtly influence where we are today. Listening to this album I feel as though I am transported to different times and places. African slave banza, witty folk rhymes, slow-paced sliding banjo, sophisticated double-banjo, wailing fiddle-tunes, and some completely new inventions. Each track is a journey into its own little world. Avoiding nostalgia, Trischka's technical mastery and fresh approach renders 'roots banjo' music that is powerfully evocative and still new.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never a dull moment August 15, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A delightful variety on this album - because of the changing mix of guest artists and instruments there is never a dull moment nor is there a sense of sameness from one cut to another. However, the songs work as a beautifully-crafted and inspiring whole.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Ol' Fashioned Bluegrass Fun August 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This here is some good ol' fashioned bluegrass. It makes your toes tap and you can feel the rhythm in your body.
There are a lot of up-tempo numbers on here, that showcase the incredible musicians and vocal talents of a slew of guest artists partnered with Tony on his banjo.
A perfect balance of ragin fast tunes with laid-back songs with folksy singing and soulful playing. Banjo, Fiddle, Guitar, Bass, Harmonica: all the makings of a great country bluegrass album.
If you are a fan of folk or bluegrass music, this album is a definite must on your list, as is anything Tony Trischka puts out!

5.0 out of 5 stars incredible diversity January 18, 2014
By Mr. A
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a student of Tony's on Artist works. I get to hear him allot in lessons, but did not have any of his cd's. I was blown away by the talent of Tony and his other musicians. So many ways to play so many sounds to enjoy. If you are a banjo player this is a must, and if you are a banjo lover you will not be dissapointed
