I'm a relatively new mandolin player and would like to expand my CD collection to include items by mandolin players beyond the folks listed above. I've always been a huge fan of David Grisman and have lots of his CDs. In addition, I have a good selection of CDs by Sam Bush, Bill Monroe, Ricky Skaggs & Chris Thile, including many of the groups they have played with. When I look beyond those folks I know lots of names, but struggle to know which CDs to pick. I would like to get some recommendations, so please list your favorite CDs by a mandolin player other than the ones listed above.
Here's my list:
1. Butch Baldassari, John Reischman & Robin Bullock - Travellers
2. The Anger/Marshall Band - Brand New Can
3. Kentucky Colonels - Appalachian Swing! ( I love Roland White's work on this CD) If you don't think this one should be on the list, then please pretend I listed Aubrey Haynie - Doin' My Time
