ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Michael has transcribed, performed and recorded JS Bach's 1st and 3rd Suites for unaccompanied cello. This was a rather preposterous notion, but Miles like many, became enchanted by these extraordinary melodies. No banjo player has ever recorded these works in their entirety. Critics and musicians alike have applauded this work.

"Miles has dared to take on some of the most profound music ever written...and succeeded."
HOWARD REICH, CHICAGO TRIBUNE

"With understanding of phrasing and feel, Miles has produced a CD that will stand the test of time as a great, unequaled performance...this great music should not go unnoticed."
JOHN McEUEN, NITTY GRITTY DIRT BAND

"A remarkable feat...my first reaction to his playing was a smile and then amazement."
JANOS STARKER, INDIANA UNIVERSITY

Matt Jenson

great
Just when you think you've heard it all! I'm a banjo player and I lent this CD to my classically-trained piano-teaching mother and I think she finally sees the banjo as a legitimate instrument! A great CD for banjo lovers and classical lovers alike!

Margaret Christenbury

Incredible!
This is positively sublime. Even if you don't like banjo you'll love this!
