If you happen to come across Killian Mansfield’s “Somewhere Else,” a new album issued by 429 Records, a division of Savoy, you might wonder how several big-name musicians came to appear on a recording by a 16 year-old ukulele player from upstate New York.

Inspiring. How many in this world exist for many years yet find it hard to live? Maybe I needed to see that today, thanks.

Thanks for the tip, I'm downloading a couple of the tracks from iTunes...

Sounds real good!

(Anyone have a URL to something that lists who played on which tracks? I'm listening to it through my subscription on Rhapsody, which gives me access to the music, but no liner notes.)
