The music is a gentle and gorgeous fusion of string band music and chamber jazz in the spirit of Edgar Meyer, Mike Marshall, and Bela Fleck's Uncommon Ritual project, as well as efforts by the Deadly Nightshade Family Singers. Of note is a surprisingly delicate take on "Man of Constant Sorrow" sung by Stanley, which...

The music is a gentle and gorgeous fusion of string band music and chamber jazz in the spirit of Edgar Meyer, Mike Marshall, and Bela Fleck's Uncommon Ritual project, as well as efforts by the Deadly Nightshade Family Singers. Of note is a surprisingly delicate take on "Man of Constant Sorrow" sung by Stanley, which is capped by a stunningly subtle improvisation by pianist Lazlo Gardony and bassist John Repucci. Also stunning is Kaplansky's haunting take on the traditional "Wayfaring Stranger." The production is suitably warm throughout, lending much depth to producer/arranger Glaser's vision of secular spiritual music. Statman's highly soulful mandolin and clarinet playing adds immeasurably to the deeply gorgeous tone of the disc.

    Classical Grass

    The Shifting Sands of Time is a very unique CD. The Wayfaring Strangers are a singular blend of bluegrass, classical, folk, jazz, and world music. They use guest singers such as Ralph Stanley, Tim O’Brien, and Rhonda Vincent to add to the variety oft heir music. Just compare Man of Constant Sorrow to the version on O Brother Where Art Thou and you start to understand what they are doing. This is exciting and yet peaceful music. Don’t miss it!
