They're at it again, getting cozy and playing on the porch. Yo-Yo Ma and Edgar Meyer, late of Lincoln Center, have reunited with Nashville's Mark O'Connor to produce more of their classical-bluegrass hybrid, this time with the flavorful additions of country singer-fiddler Allison Krause and pop singer-songwriter James Taylor. The formula is similar to that of the best-selling APPALACHIA WALTZ album: the sweetly laid-back tunes of O'Connor alternating with the somewhat more pungent efforts of Meyer, and arrangements of a few traditional reels and Stephen Foster songs thrown in for spice and good measure. It's a winning combination, comfortably mixing old and new to make music that is at once fresh and familiar.
