    Nice showcase of their 4-piece with rather standard material

    This bluegrass album is a beaut for their debut! The US Navy's Country Current Bluegrass Quartet features some very accomplished musicians that really know how to pick and sing. This album has a nice variety of nicely arranged material that showcases this wonderful 4-piece. Some rather standard songs are covered like Ain't Nobody Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone, The Old Home Place, Big Spike Hammer, Good Woman's Love, and The Prisoner's Song. On the other hand, some originals by guitarist/vocalist Wayne Taylor also caught my ear: Heart of Caroline, and Every Time it Snows. Taylor was recently nominated as Best Male Vocalist of the Year by the IBMA. His song, "Heart of Caroline," is also receiving good airplay and acclaim around the country. Banjo-player Keith Arneson offers two hard-driving original numbers with Douglas the Dog, and Sugarland Run. Fiddle and mandolin are handled well by Patrick White, and the upright bass is played by Joseph Wheatley or Michael Nicholson. Besides straight ahead bluegrass, the Country Current also has a penchant and ability to present folk-flavored songs like Steve Spurgin's A Walk in the Irish Rain, and Tom Paxton's Last Thing on my Mind. If I had one criticism, it would be that "song-carrier" Bill Clifton might not fully appreciate their version of "Little Whitewashed Chimney" that changes some words and leaves out the second verse of this beautiful song. Growing up a "Navy brat" myself, I am overjoyed at the US Navy's commitment to supporting country and bluegrass music in their organization. In the future, I'd like to see their bluegrass quartet become a full quintet (or sextet), and I hope that they'll soon produce an album of all original material.

    Another Altissimo! Rip-Off!!

    These CDs issued by Altissimo! were actually intended as free recordings to the general public by US service bands. What Altissimo! has done is broker a deal whereby they can package and sell these internal recordings for a hefty price. The sound quality is un-even, and selections and length of the CD all reflect that this was a product never intended for sale by the US Navy. Altissimo! is trying to profit from post 9/11 feelings here by issuing these shoddy products. They do the members of our fine service bands no credit by putting out such a poor product. Stay away from anything Altissimo! does. Not recommended.
