It was once announced from a Moxy Fruvous stage that the banjo is the future of music. These two recordings go far to support that proposition. The Masters is a bluegrass all- star band led by banjoist Eddie Adcock (Country Gentlemen, IInd Generation, Talk of the Town). He joins fiddler Kenny Baker (Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys), mandolin player Jesse McReynolds (Jim and Jesse & The Virginia Boys) and the "King of the Dobro", Josh Graves. The instrumental album is a landmark recording, dripping with talent. The classic album will remain a touchstone among bluegrass recordings for years to come.
