  • The banjo has been a major player in Steve Martin's act since his earliest days of stand-up. Back in the era of wild 'n' crazy guys and arrows through heads, the comedian's bluegrass breakdowns seemed just another puzzle piece to his absurdist shtick. However, four decades into a career of comedy, movies, novels, and memoirs, Martin proves his banjo love no passing fancy on his dead-serious 2009 musical debut, THE CROW. It's a somber yet fun affair that ranges from rollicking instrumentals like "Hoedown at Alice's" and "Tin Roof" (on which he is joined by fellow comedian-musician Eugene Levy) to the rich country balladry of "Pretty Flowers" (featuring Dolly Parton & Vince Gill in gentle duet). The only time Martin regresses to silliness comes on "Late for School," a dizzying, sweet, and downright hilarious narrative of a dash to beat the opening bell told from the frantic schoolboy's perspective.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.67) - "Martin showcases his fine five-string talents on instrumentals such as 'Pitkin County Turnaround' and the wistful 'Freddie's Lilt.'" -- Grade: B
