Tony Trischka has been in the studio with Paul McCartney recently producing the forthcoming Steve Martin bluegrass album 'Rare Bird Alert'. This photo was taken at the studio in Easthampton, NY where Sir Paul recorded his vocals. As you can see it was quite the laid-back casual scene.

Steve Martin said that he remains surprised to have collaborated with one of his childhood idols on the track 'Best Love'.

"It's very hard to believe," Martin said."I was a kid when I first heard Paul McCartney, and if you told me one day that he'd be singing one of my tunes... I'm still flabbergasted."

The album is due out on March 15th on Rounder Records and includes guest performances from Paul McCartney, Dixie Chicks and The Steep Canyon Rangers.
