Bill Monroe - Bean Blossom Click here to see this CD at!

By Marc Greilsamer

Recorded in June 1973 at the seventh annual Bill Monroe Bluegrass Festival in Indiana, Bean Blossom not only showcases Monroe's Blue Grass Boys, but also his most-famous disciples. Jim & Jesse, Jimmy Martin, and Lester Flatt, a solo act since 1969, each deliver high-quality, hard-driving traditional bluegrass before they all return to the stage for the grand finale. Although each artist is worthy of greater exploration, this zesty set serves as a useful introduction to each one's particular stylistic traits: Monroe's prototypical high, lonesome wail; Jim & Jesse's seamless brother harmonies; Martin's aggressive vocals and urgent rhythms; and Flatt's mellow, conversational phrasing.
