I love classical music when it's presented in a non-traditional package. In fact, it's about the only way you will find me listening to the stuff. I can trace this fascination all the way back to Bela Fleck and some of his incredible banjo handiwork.
Since Nickel Creek's hiatus a few years back, I've kept up with the solo careers of each of their members. All three are top-notch musicians that place more value on exploration and creativity than on album sales. I appreciate dedication to one's craft. With that in mind, I'd like to thank Chris Thile for this wonderful collection.
