Wow. If you like modern bluegrass, this is it...

Bela is a force of nature, but he can go off the deep end, from time to time. To me, "Drive" is perfect. It is a terrific blend of modern and traditional that just simply works. And the musicians are, of course, simply the best there are. If you have only one Bela CD, this should be the one.

This is some of the best bluegrass I've ever heard. It's just "newgrass"-y enough to be interesting without being self-indulgent. And the instrumentalists are all excellent. Key Tracks: Whitewate, Slipstream, Up Around the Bend, The Legend, The Lights of Home

Brilliant

Drive is simple beautiful. Béla had been stretching the boundaries of the banjo for years, and with this album presented an accumulation of everything he had been discovering. A must have for any long drive, it is a stunning instrumental album that expands on the Bluegrass musical vocabulary and features the best of the best musicians in the genre. The talents and imagination of his companions, whom all have played together for years, highlight Béla’s compositions. The camaraderie is infectious, and the music, while complicated and intricate, is soothing and fun to listen to.
