Album Notes
Mandolinist Butch Baldassari has released his second CD of all instrumental bluegrass. New Classics focuses on original tunes destined to become part of the bluegrass repertoire. Butch has written four of the twelve tunes presented here. Other writers include Bill Crahan, Steve Hartz, Lou Martin, John Miller, Ron Pennington, Billy Rose and Ward Stout.

The finest bluegrass players recording today make these tracks shine! Special guests include: Robert Bowlin, Dennis Crouch, Glen Duncan, Richard Greene, David Grier, Aubrey Haynie, Steve Huber and Mark Schatz. As a special lead vocalist, Sonya Isaacs adds a stunning texture on It's Rainin' the Blues...For Bill Monroe, a requiem for the late master.

Butch Baldassari is well known in blue grass circles through his work with Weary Hearts, Lonesome Standard Time and Richard Green's The Grass Is Greener. He is also founder and leader of the Nashville Mandolin Ensemble. Recent titles include "Mandolin Hymns" (Soundart) and "Bach, Beatles, Bluegrass" (Pinecastle).

I have always liked Butch since the first time I heard him. I am new to his kind of music, but I must say he is one of the best, and I heard a great number! I wish him all the best with the challanges he is facing right now and I ask God to bless him and his family. Thanks for sharing your great talent.
