"Once again, this CD showcases Coller's masterful acoustic guitar flatpicking and his versatility on dobro, mandolin and baritone ukulele. As on his earlier album, he surrounds himself with a roster of some of our finest acoustic musicians, namely banjo virtuoso Tim Weed, mandolinists Dan Large and Dave Hanks, bassists Joe Kyle Jr., Ned Doherty and Pat Campbell, percussionists Willow Van Den Hoek and Paul Cicco, drummer Eddie Sassin and fiddle players Leif Karlstrom and Annie Staninec. -Paul Liberatore, Marin Independent Journal

Bill Monroe listened to the old time fiddle playing of his Uncle Pen, and also learned a lot about the blues from the old Black players around him when he was a kid. He decided when he started his career as a musician to mix these two roots, add a little Gospel and give his personal genre a new name — Bluegrass.
Along with Bluegrass I like to play many genres on several different instruments. When I first became interested in Tropical styles of music like Reggae, Ska, Rock Steady, I was living in Santa Cruz CA, playing in a Gypsy Swing band, studying jazz. These new sounds eventually lead me down to the Caribbean, where I found in the Leeward Islands a wide variety of other styles: Calypso, Soca, Skiffle, Zouk, Mazouka, Beguine.
With Bermudagrass I've attempted to combine all of these musical influences into my own genre.
Hope you enjoy the mix!
