Thoroughly enjoyable listeningReviewed in the United States on 7 November 2001
This compilation draws from various Sony albums that feature popular and classical artists collaborating in presenting traditional American music, as opposed to the glitzy stuff mainstream country-western has become. It is thoroughly enjoyable. Joshua Bell and Yo-yo Ma ease right into the general tone of relaxed geniality alongside Mark O'Connor, Edgar Meyer and others, though Bell on the whole seems more comfortable with the traditional idiom. Only on a few of the more repetitive fast numbers is there a bit of a sense of too much musicianship being brought to bear on too slight material. But this is more than compensated for by some of the heartbreakingly beautiful slow tracks, among them Edgar Meyer's hypnotic "Sliding Down" and Mark O'Connor's moving take on the familiar "Amazing Grace," done unaccompanied. As if there weren't enough talent among the instrumentalists James Taylor and Alison Krauss contribute two vocals in their inimitable styles. All in all, "Heartland" is a music-lover's feast.

Highly recommended by a friend and I've recommended it to othersReviewed in the United States on 11 September 2015
Highly recommended by a friend and I've recommended it to others. The musician in my life loves this album and kept a couple of the tracks looping in the car for months while raving about chord progressions and such. Having only ridden together a dozen or so times during that obsession I never got over the haunting beauty of those pieces. I don't know that I would have liked them so much after constant daily play, but then I'd have listened to the rest of the album too.

Excellent CDReviewed in the United States on 2 May 2016
This is a great collection. There is enough variation in music that the songs do NOT become monotonous and all sound the same. High quality performances by top- notch musicians. High quality sound reproduction delivered. I love listening to this in my car while driving to and from work. For a CD of mostly instrumental music - it doesn't get any better than this.

Read the less favorable reviews before you purchase!Reviewed in the United States on 9 February 2018
I wasn't expecting experimental jazz with a title like this. It's mostly quite good, just not what I expected and I don't much enjoy the cuts that are 'mountain jam'.
