A Jon Stickley Trio record wouldn’t be complete without a tribute to their Newgrass forefathers. Birdland Breakdown is a tune by mandolinist, Jon Reischman, and appeared on Tony Rice’s jazz-grass album, “Still Inside”. This song started making its way into the jam circles in Asheville a few years ago, and the Trio decided to put together their own stylistic arrangement using their favorite “bluegrass halftime” groove. Lyndsay’s fiddle shines on this entire track, and Jon and Patrick join her for some unison soloing, something completely new for the Trio. Patrick breaks up the tune with a deconstructed drum solo.
