There's a lot of excellent music on Steve Martin's new bluegrass album with the Steep Canyon Rangers, which is good since five of the collection's 14 tracks are instrumentals.The Steep Canyon Rangers prove their worth throughout on their second studio album with Martin. The band formed in 2000 by students at the University of North Carolina more than hold their own and Woody Platts' lead vocals carry the best songs.You could say "The Long-Awaited Album" reflects Martin's tally of Grammy Awards – three for music and two in the late '70s for comedy records – and that feels just right.
