Was watching Studio Jams on the BET Jazz channel earlier today, and caught a new episode with this pretty young guy named Chris Thile on mandolin....HOLY S***! This guy is absolutely INSANE! I couldn't believe the stuff I was hearing him pull off. His chops/melodic sense/over musicianship are all off the charts. He plays with a pretty hip "progressive bluegrass" band called Nickel Creek...anybody else heard of this guy? If you haven't, I seriously suggest you check him out, or at least keep an eye/ear out for that episode of Studio Jams. WHOA, he's really sick!
