Come on, Pete. We know you were busy with Hot Rize and your banjo camps and all, but 16 years between solo albums? It makes Andy Statman seem hasty. Wernick is a banjo player who has been mixing tradition with experimentation since the early '70s, and "On A Roll" contains the expected newgrass with Tim O'Brien, Stuart Duncan, Jerry Douglas and Jeff White, among others. What gives this disc an added spark are the five tracks with Wernick's "Live Five," a jazz quintet of banjo, clarinet, vibes, bass and drums. They play well together, avoiding the sense of a mixed marriage thanks to Wernick's talent for writing material that fits the instrumentation while staying within the boundaries of progressive bluegrass banjo.
