“Behind the 8 Ball”
RECORD LABEL:Crossroads Label Group
A breathtaking instrumental, “Behind the 8 Ball” is an upbeat barn-burner that lends itself to some creative soloing. The song has an anxious spirit like we all have from time to time when we get in tough spots. It’s a fun tune that has great energy and a different sound than you normally hear in bluegrass barn burner instrumentals. Leftwich is one of the decade’s preeminent instrumental artists, transcending region and genre alike. He’s a musician’s musician — widely admired by his peers and colleagues, yet still one of the best-kept secrets in and around the world of bluegrass music.
