Solo debut from Mountain Heart fiddler

by redtuncitroll@hotmail.com on 5/12/2006

After six years as a co-founding member of Mountain Heart, 26-year-old fiddler VanCleve has stepped front and center to lead his first solo release. Though his Mountain Heart bandmates are on-board, this is clearly VanCleve's record, serving as producer and chief songwriter, and adding lead vocals on several tunes. Beyond his regular mates, he's brought complementary players to the sessions, including guitarists Rob Ickes and Bryan Sutton, banjoist Ron Stewart, and vocalists Ronnie Bowman and Sonya Isaacs. There are plenty of VanCleve's bluegrass roots to be heard here, including tight multipart harmonies and hot-picked instrumentals, but there are also moodier newgrass tunes that diverge from the standard canon to take in country, Celtic, jazz and other influences. This is a rich solo debut from an established group player. 3-3/4 stars, if allowed fractional ratings. [©2006 redtunictroll at hotmail dot com]
