    Thanks Scott and Alan for reminding us all what a great and innovative player Butch Baldassari was. I'm very excited to for the chance to see and hear this performance. I got to meet Alan at Monroe Camp and we both shared our appreciation for Butch's music and his teaching. We all need to remember him. Thanks!!!

    Butch Baldassari was a great mandolin player but was above all that, IMO, a good man!

    Update on this project. Turns out there is only an audio recording, but spectacular for sure, and worth listening to which is what I'm doing right now. But, there are still hurdles to clear and decisions to come from the owner of all of this so stay tuned.

    I can only imagine the legal web with all the parties involved and the adapted tunes, but whatever it takes, this should be released.

    Turns out, unexpected things happened a few hours after posting that. I was pretty sure this was dead in the water but now that music is going to get heard. It's just spectacular, all the way round, from the symphony and in particular Butch's playing which was superb.
