Mount Vernon Nights: Jeff Little Trio
With few exceptions, the piano does not play a prominent part in Appalachian music, and is rarely the lead instrument. But Jeff Little is an exception and a remarkable one. His distinctive two-handed style, much influenced by themountain flatpicked guitar tradition, is breathtaking in its speed, precision and clarity. National Public Radio stated: Jeff Little is a remarkable musician, steeped in the tradition of his native Blue Ridge, yet also a virtuosic and eclectic innovator.
