When we were young back in Chicago we use to sit around and ad lib by the hour. This tune was one you could move the harmony's all around on. I can remember many days and nights just playing and playing. (Cycle of Fifth's -- Chromatic -- you name it).
"The Manhattan Minstrel" Eddy Davis playing a "Dixieland Favorite" by Earl Hines and Henri Woode from 1933. We played this often back in my Chicago Days while growing up in the 1950's and early 60's. Davis is performing on his Custom OME 12" head -- 17 fret Neck Tenor Banjo.
