Consumer Guide Reviews:

Genuine Negro Jig [Nonesuch, 2010]
Three actual "Negroes" reconstitute "genuine" African-American fiddle band--sprightly and lyrical and a trifle polite, as perforce such bands must be ("Your Baby Ain't Sweet Like Mine," "Trouble in Your Mind"). ***

Leaving Eden [Nonesuch, 2012]
Novelty revivals yes, theme statements no--please, I'm begging, no-o-o-o ("Boodle-De-Bum-Bum," "Ruby, Are You Mad at Your Man?") **
