Howlin' at the Moon

On one of his most satisfying solo albums, newgrass mandolin virtuoso Bush makes up for his monochromatic vocal stylings with the same zeal he applies to his instrumental work (an energetic stew of jazz, ‘grass, rock, reggae, gospel, and blues). Having pals John Cowan, Bela Fleck, and Emmylou Harris on board for Howlin’ at the Moon doesn’t hurt either. B+
