Thile Collaboration with Yo-Yo Ma
Chris Thile recently collaborated on Yo-Yo Ma's new project, The Goat Rodeo Sessions, which also features Stuart Duncan and Edgar Meyer. If you're unfamiliar, a goat rodeo is "about the most polite term used by aviation people (and others in higher risk situations) to describe a scenario that requires about 100 things to go right at once if you intend to walk away from it.” To learn more about the project, you can watch the first teaser in which Chris, Yo-Yo, Stuart, and Edgar discuss the album. You can also watch the guys perform a full song -- "Attaboy" -- in the studio HERE. The album, due out October 25th, is now available for pre-order at Amazon here.
