Review: ‘My Bluegrass Heart’ – Bela Fleck

15 time GRAMMY award-winning banjo pioneer Béla Fleck returns to the bluegrass genre with My Bluegrass Heart.

After venturing off, unlocking the instruments potential in other genres, this latest 19-track collection marks Flecks homecoming in style. The album brings together some of the genres finest musicians and bridges the generational gap as he teams up with collaborators who were a part of his classic album Driveas well as new faces such as Billy Strings.

There is a high energy throughout the album, from the opening track, the apprehensive Vertigo which has a questionable time signature in parts, to the very last note of Psalm 136. A stand out track for me is Hunters Moon, with its eeriness and intensity, it feels delicately crafted with a well thought out arrangement and production.

Its an enjoyable listen which will see your foot tapping along throughout to this instrumental master-class.
