Great Album!!! The perspective on this project is amazing. I saw the PBS special, loved the music, had to get it.

From NPR review

Weekend Edition Sunday, August 24, 2008 - Andrew Jackson was, according to biographer James Parton, a "patriot and a traitor. He was the greatest of the generals and wholly ignorant of the art of war. He was the most candid of men and capable of the profoundest dissimulation. He was a democratic autocrat, an urbane savage, an atrocious saint." In his time, the seventh president of the United States and father of the Democratic Party inspired hatred, pride and reluctant admiration from his countrymen. It's a story that also inspired composer Christopher Hedge to write the music for a public-television documentary about Jackson's life. Hedge's music is now collected on a CD titled Andrew Jackson: The Atrocious Saint. The project covers a broad stretch of Jackson's life, from his military days through his presidency, and pulls themes and motifs from Native American and slave music. Hedge has collaborated and recorded projects with Congolese master drummer Titos Sompa, the Kronos Quartet and Chico Freeman. For the Jackson score, he teams up with Native American flutist R. Carlos Nakai and legendary mandolin player David Grisman.
