Earl Scruggs almost singlehandedly invented and popularized the rolling, three-finger banjo technique ("Scruggs style") that has become the signature sound of bluegrass. Over the period of a couple of years, many of the best banjo players in bluegrass convened in Nashville to record this tribute to Earl Scruggs. Now, with his recent passing, this collection of never-before-released material has become a memorial album as well, for his pervasive influence can be heard on every track. Bluegrass banjo doesn't get much better than this.
