The Manhattan Minstrel Eddy Davis playing a Fantastic Song written by Billy Strayhorn. There is a terrific youtube by Stan Getz that you must see. Davis is playing on his Custom OME 12" head - 17 fret Tenor Banjo.
Hey can we try this for the TUNE OF THE MONTH? Here's also the Lead Sheet. Eddy
Attention Please ---- I'm putting up the lead sheet again ---- I have the HARMONIES (chords over the top) WRONG in bars 6 and 7 ---- they should stay D MINOR harmony. This differs to the later time this type motif happens when the HARMONY is MAJOR. Do you think this is too difficult? I could write the whole thing out in 4 note harmony? Maybe Duke Ellington style music is too much for the folks on the hang-out. Well, better luck next time. Sorry 'bout that. "A Minstrel"
