"Paul Roberts/first listen"

I received my copy today and I'm enjoying it immensely. The synergy amongst the artists and the thoroughly enjoyable variety of sounds from Mary's different banjos, really makes this CD stand apart.

It's a clean, expertly done recording, with Mary's perennial-trademark-insistently-happy-rhythmic-swing shining throughout.

Listening to Mary's characteristically bouncy banjo style never fails to remind me of what this knock-down style is all about. There's a happiness coming through her music that just won't quit.

Mary, thanks for sharing your music (and your heart) with the world.

Drumming On the Edge Of Banjo
There are audio clips on cdbaby:
Here is a Youtube of a performance tune:



Two time Florida Banjo Champion, Mary Z. Cox, and African Caribbean drummer, Yazid, fuse celtic and Southern frailing banjo with Afro Caribbean drumming in highly percussive rhythms for dancing and listening.

Yazid (William Johnson) is a professional drummer and percussion instructor that plays regularly with several performance and dance groups all over Florida. His musical background ranges from professor of ethnomusicology at Florida State University to drummer for Marvin Gaye.

Mary Z. Cox, banjo recording artist, plays banjo with her guitarist husband, Bob Cox, in concerts and workshops from coast to coast, and has also played for old time dances in Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina for many dance groups.

Mary Z. & Yazid are very pleased to introduce this new sound that draws from the not so diverse African/Caribbean and Celtic influenced Southern banjo cultures. The banjo is, after all, a drum with strings.

Mary Z and Yazid are honored to be recorded and produced by Gordy Cox (Gordy Cox Productions). His world class ear for fusion blends has left a very exciting influence on our newly released CD, "Drumming On the Edge of Banjo ".
