Looking for something in the same vein...

Postby Yeonathan » Thu Apr 03, 2008 5:39 pm

I recently purchased both Mike Marshall/Chris Thile cds (the live and the studio) and loved every moment of both.

I am looking for other similar things - particularly someone that does something similar to the more unique sounding pieces like "hualalai" and "carpathian mountain breakdown".

Any suggestions? Doesn't need to be a mandolin duet, but that would be nice.

Try ' Tone Poems ' by David Grisman and Tony Rice, 16 tracks using 16 different mandolins and 16 different guitars, or even David Grismans ' Tone Poets ' same gutiar and mandolin played by many different players.

I assume from the tracks you mention you haven't heard Marshall/Thile's "Into the Cauldron" a mixture of self penned and cover material.

Dave mentioned the the Grisman/Rice Tone Poems - I'd also recommend the Martin Taylor/Grisman Tone Poems and, if you fancy a bigger sound, have a listen to Bella Fleck & the Flecktones. - If you can find their, DVD all the better. (The combination of electric banjo, bass, drums, syndrums, oboe, sax, bassoon, steel drums, tabla and mongolian throat singer is a joy to listen to ......but alas no mandolin.)

I do own it- great tunes. I just happened to like the live one a little more.

I know Bela Fleck and the Flecktones - and some of the older stuff does have mandolin, they even had mike marshall with 'em for a while.

Thanks to both of you...sounds like Tone Poems it is.

Both Great albums! Also check out Uncommon Ritual with Bela Fleck, Edgar Meyer and Mike Marshall. Thats is probably my favorite. You may also enjoy Charlie Chamberlain. Not much I can find released but a lot of music at www.charliechamberlain.com
