Music We Like: "Recapturing the Banjo" by Otis Taylor.

On Recapturing the Banjo, bluesman Otis Taylor reconnects the banjo to its African origins and demonstrates the instruments versatility in music that ranges from original songs to traditional compositions and contemporary music (the disc includes a cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Hey Joe"). Cool stuff. The booklet accompanying the CD contains must-read information about the banjo's history.
