| Sierra Hull's "new" tenor »
June 15, 2015 | Chris Biesterfeldt; Urban Mandolin
In fall of 2013 we raved about Chris Biesterfeldt's freshman recording boasting "his train-songish rendition of the classic 70's Weather Report jazz-fusion fave Teen Town is dead-on, laugh out loud accurate, and one of the freshest acoustic string jazz interpretations you'll hear." The heavily in demand Broadway multi-instrumentalist orchestra veteran's CD is available for purchase from your favorite online resources and we highly recommend including this in your "go-to" mandolin library. The 16 song collection of mostly classic bebop with some stirring pop side trips is a fret barn burner.
Classify under "Jazz Fusion Mandolin."
