America’s premiere mandolin quartet playing at the top of its game, great choice of material, superb sound, this recording “Americana” is guaranteed pure pleasure for anyone who loves quality instrumental music.
– David Balakrishnan, violinist/composer of the Turtle Island Quartet
A great selection of material that blends classical and modern music with the mandolin’s American roots.
– Mike Marshall
Few recordings deserve the title of “Landmark” before their release. I’m confident Americana is that project. Exceptional playing, superb arrangements and a collection of spectacular material from the finest mandolin quartet of all-time.
