It will inspire you to play the banjo.

Ross is a great teacher and player...He can certainly help virtually any player get better than they are now.Make sure that you get his Blazing the West CD. It will inspire you to play the banjo.

all-star cast

Joining Nickerson is an all-star cast, too numerous to mention in full, but which includes the Riders in the Sky, Jason Carter and Mike Bub (both from Del McCoury's Band), Laurie Lewis, Peter McLaughlin, Tim O'Brien and Blue Highway's Dobro wizard, Rob Ickes. Nickerson's playing is clean and powerful, with a lot of drive, but he can jazz things up as well, and it's especially on the cuts where he and Ickes square off that Blazing the West works best. The version here of Leon McAuliffe's "Panhandle Rag" is worth the cost of the disc by itself--the only thing missing is Bob Wills throwing in an "Ah-hahhh" or two. Banjo instrumental albums can be (and often are) tedious. This one isn't.

Ross Nickerson deserves a lot of credit for coming up with tasteful, appropriate, and interesting banjo versions for such a wide variety of tunes, on some very challenging material".
