    A banjo album America can believe in.

    "I don't need you! I don't need anything ... except this banjo record." This is a terrific passion project, apparently, for Steve Martin. While he was perfecting the "comedy of the stupid" in the '60s through the '80s, he was seriously finding his inner mountain music savant with the banjo and writing the material on this album. It actually stands up as a fantastic bluegrass record, if one excuses it for being a little scattered. A little Celtic, a little traditional, a little fusiongrass .. and one goofy Steve Martin-sung number to promote on the late-night shows. But the rock-solid ensemble of blugrass and banjo monsters completely sells the execution of these (mostly) Martin-penned songs, and it gets better, like a good banjo record, with repeated listening. Sally Ratts' album design is also unique and helps pull the whole project into a kind of vintage-wacky zen perfection, which is quite an accomplishment for a CD package.
