    Woodsongs [#1502] The Kruger Brothers The Kruger Brothers are three soulful world-class virtuosos originally from Europe and now living in North Carolina. They were first introduced to American audiences in 1997, quickly gaining the attention of fans and the music industry alike. In an ever expanding body of work, Jens Kruger (banjo, vocals), Uwe Kruger (guitar, lead vocals), and Joel Landsberg (bass, vocals) personify the spirit of exploration and innovation that forms the core of the American musical tradition. In fact, Jens Kruger was recently named the fourth recipient of the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass Music. Kruger is known for his innovative banjo composition and performance that integrates folk music with European classical music. This is personified in the band's latest work 'The Spirit of the Rockies'. A poetic, spiraling tale about ghosts, relationships and guides - both seen and unseen that was written by Jens for a small orchestral ensemble. duration 56:30   STEREO TVG

    American Masters [#2801] Ricky Jay: Deceptive Practice This documentary is a journey into the world of modern magic and the small circle of eccentrics who were its perpetual devotees. At its center is the multi-talented Ricky Jay, a best-selling author and historian, an acclaimed actor, a leading collector of antiquarian books and artifacts, but above all a conjurer capable of creating a profound sense of wonder and disbelief in even the most jaded of audiences.
    Told largely in Jay's own voice, it traces the story of his achievements, from his early apprenticeship, beginning at age four, with his grandfather Max Katz, an accomplished amateur magician, as well as Al Flosso, Slydini,Cardini, Francis Carlyle, and Roy Benson, all of whom were among the best magicians of the 20th century. The film weaves together performance footage from his one-man shows and classic TV appearances,and also includes friends and collaborators such as Steve Martin (who joins him in a hilarious turn on a '70s vintage Dinah Shore TV show) and David Mamet, who says of Jay: "He's devoted to that theater that he alone sees. He has the ideal of magic in his mind to which he's devoted his life: to teaching it, to performing it, to perfecting it, to researching it."
