As it turns out, the Tales From the Acoustic Planet albums are where Béla Fleck sounds the most comfortable in the '90s. As his jazz fusion records begin to sound played out, his acoustic experimentation and returns to straight-ahead bluegrass sound lively, vibrant, and fresh. Much of the album is devoted to Fleck originals, complimented by a handful of covers, none of which are predictable. The same can be said for the music: Even seasoned newgrass listeners will probably be surprised by some of the twists and turns here, while the sheer commitment and astonishing musicianship will win over traditionalists. But the true key to The Bluegrass Sessions is that even when it gets technical, it feels heartfelt, and the textures keep changing from song to song, enough to keep it interesting, even captivating, throughout 18 songs and 70 minutes.

My sister turned me on to Bela Fleck. When she got home, I made her sit down, close her eyes, and imagine that Fleck and his friends were sitting in the room with her. I can't describe her reaction as a banjo played beside her, another made a slide in front of her, and a guy started laughing to her right. My reaction? My jaw dropped! I sat there for the entire album enjoying music for music's sake for the first time in a long time. The songs are exquisite.
