How To Grow A Woman From The Ground
by Chris Thile
Released: Aug 2006
Label: Sugar Hill Records
After the omnivorous range of Deceiver, Thile returned to the palate of acoustics, leading the How to Grow a Band and their traditional bluegrass instrumentation. The blistering arrangements bring neo-traditionalist bluegrass to a boil, but it's the far-reaching song selection -- from the White Stripes to Willie Dixon -- that flaunts Thile's haute taste. Heart-racing cover of Gillian Welch only kinda blowing your mind? Consider that this was recorded live.
