Manufacturer Description

Bass & Mandolin has been nomitated for three Grammy Awards this year: Best Contemporary Instrumental Album; Best Instrumental Composition for the album track "Tarnation," written by Thile and Meyer; and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical for engineers Richard King & Dave Sinko and mastering engineer Robert C. Ludwig.

Nonesuch releases the second recording collaboration by bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolinist Chris ThileBass & Mandolin—on September 9, 2014. The album features 10 original compositions by the two artists, who have been performing together sporadically for more than a decade and made their recording debut as a duo with 2008’s Edgar Meyer & Chris Thile, which the Washington Post, among others, praised, saying “Thile and Meyer are most enthralling when they pass a melody back and forth, fingers flying.” Meyer also plays piano on the album and Thile plays guitar. The duo embarks on a month-long North American tour on September 16.

Meyer and Thile began playing together 15 years ago, and began performing live as a duo in 2003. Thile says, “We have grown a lot as a collaborative entity between our first recording and now, at least partially due to our work together on The Goat Rodeo Sessions collaboration with Yo-Yo Ma and Stuart Duncan. As collaborators, we’ve found a warmer voice to share.” Meyer adds, “Chris is comfortable with all kinds of improvising, with lots of different musical feelings and rhythmic feelings. With him I can do anything I want. I can just be a bass player or I can play the melody. There are not many people with whom I have so much common ground. We can get to the bottom of things very quickly.”
