Once again Darol & Mike careen their musical backhoe straight across the backyards of jazz, newgrass, rock and world music, cutting a deep trench filled with music so exuberantly melodic you’ll twitch & dance the whole CD. Caution! Filling is hot!

Uninhibited improvising … their music has moved far beyond its bluegrass roots to incorporate bebop and other modern jazz styles, as well as elements from Indian, Brazilian, and Celtic music … Marshall and Anger may have played with some of the world’s finest musicians but as the playing on Brand New Can shows, their greatest inspiration has always been each other.  "Inimitable, ebullient and fascinating!" -Star-News (McCall, ID)

"Different, catchy and cool. The bonus jam at the end of track 10 is worth waiting for." -O's Place Jazz Review

"Serious instrumental music, a blend of folk, fusion and jazz played by 4 very impressive musicians...Superb music, highly recommended." -Tennessee Jazz & Blues Society

"Anyone who digs the way musical boundaries have collapsed in recent years under the sheer weight of cross-musical virtuosity, will want to pull the tab on Brand New Can." -The Record, ONTARIO CANADA

"Intense fusiongrass with nutty tutti lines at blazing tempos...(bass player) Jones does it all with aplomb, even bringing his big, blooming fretless tone to the raga style free improv of 'Zakir.' -Bass Player Magazine

"Marshall--switching between mandolin, guitar and mando-cello--and Anger were afforded even more opportunities to stretch out in this band setting, jamming through the challenging structures of their original tunes with almost giddy creativity." -Dave Royko, Chicago Tribune

BEST OF THE YEAR- POP/ROCK/JAZZ etc.
"The exploratory fiddling of Darol Anger and the neo-classical guitar and mandolin playing of Mike Marshall have been doing a fascinating dance for more than twenty years, since David Grisman's original Quintet... [Brand New Can] is their first project that could hold its own at any jazz festival." -Craig Havighurst, Nashville Tenneseean
