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

That is beautiful! Thanks for recording and sharing.

Eddy, I think only you can play that wonderful tune in an accredited way, as a tb solo. So glad if somebody else will face this hell of a job with success.

It is beautiful, and sophisticated, but maybe a little difficult for a tune of the month, as Marco mentioned. Thanks for the sheet Eddy, I'm going to have to do some intense listening on this one.

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"

Thanks Eddy, you know I'm going to give it a go. We'll see how many join in. I'm in Bluegrass mode at the moment, reading a gig, but I'm going to work through it within the next month!

Thanks Sir!
