Edgar Meyer, Bela Fleck
"Music for Two" (CD)

Keeping with his own tradition, Edgar Meyer toured the nation with Bela Fleck giving performances of all of the music from "Music for Two" before going into the studio and laying down final, polished versions of these songs. 
It's a good strategy: find out what works and get some burn-in time while building an audience for this unusual blend of classical, bluegrass, folk and jazz.

If there is a bigger name in this genre-bending field than Meyer it is Fleck, and the two seem very relaxed around each other.  Taking time to play off of the others' strengths, both superstars whirl around the other, showing off their skillz with original tunes and (unusual) covers of baroque works.
