Yo-Yo Ma has always been a musical adventurer, and so are his collaborators Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, Chris Thile and Aoife O’Donovan. Their new album, dubbed Goat Rodeo Sessions for the chaos it suggests, is a spectacular blend of classical, bluegrass, and avant-pop music by artists at the height of their powers.
I find this live session sublime. It has a bit of interview, and was recorded on the Google campus.
