And, prepare to have your ears pinned back with the enthusiasm, dexterity, timing and power that Ned has so very eloquently recorded. Using his Gibson RB-7conversion banjo, as his instrument of choice, throughout the album, Ned takes control of his musical destiny and shows how deep his talents run. In listening, over the years, I have found that there is no separating the man from the banjo, or the irreverent sense of humor from the virtuoso musician.
Intro - Ned Luberecki - Nedski personality looms large over his music, making him a bit eccentric, but a memorable and warm individual. One listen to this CD, and you can tell that Ned is a very multi-dimensional artist.
He nailed it on this one! Luberecki is currently in the lineup of the Becky Buller Band, and a most talented lady he has teamed up with.
Together they make it a new found jewel to be shared with their combined Intro - Ned Luberecki - Nedski and fans. Ned and Becky have impeccable timing together, and traditionalists will love 舞乙 - Muzik Servant - X-Treme Hard Tokyo rendering. Both these tunes will make you want to dance. The interest level never falters, and Ned keeps the listener glued to the speakers.
The song order is just one more bit of well thought out professionalism, evident as you listen your way through this CD. Their harmony The Monkberry Moon Orchestra - Velvet Glove are heartfelt, if not always on the mark intonation wise. However, to their credit, they did their homework, and that Intro - Ned Luberecki - Nedski off-key, strain for the note sound that Don Rich sang behind Buck, is present and fits this medley perfectly.
This is a release, I need to track down and give a listen to. This is the first collaboration for the Intro - Ned Luberecki - Nedski , and Ned informed me that with Kelley being from West Virginia and Dale Ann from East Kentucky, a song about being away from their mountain homes came pretty easy.
His timing and control are phenomenal. And what more can you say about his left hand stretching two strings at once and throwing pull-offs in the most unusual of places. Casey Campbell, on mandolin, has no problem whatsoever finding the groove and playing notes and runs above and around the melody line with speed, power and zeal.
When Casey is chunking the back-beat, it feels rock solid. This was another noteworthy decision by Ned to bring in the best people possible in every instance. Two more instrumentals, and a fun tune featuring Amanda Smith, are present here with another set of players that need to be mentioned.
What a hoot, and what a dynamic way to end this journey. Ned has brought together a whole handful of the best bluegrass and acoustic musicians he could find, turned them loose on a set of top notch songs of today, and yesterday, and lit them all on fire with his banjo prowess. With his musicianship, his business acumen, his fore sight, his sense of humor, and a goal of doing it the best way he knows how, Ned Luberecki has hit a homer.
