Through his involvement with the latter band, he acquired a reputation as something of a progressive player, true indeed but not limited to his picking from only that period. His work on the Jim and Jesse recordings, reissued by Pinecastle as The Old Dominion Masters box set, shows that forward-thinking melodic phrasing was already something Shuping was quite adept at well long before anyone dreamt up the term "newgrass."Shuping died in his late forties following a fight with pneumonia and upper lung infection. He died on the table while waiting for tests, apparently of a heart attack.
