That's another intercontinental job with Don on plectrum banjo & me on tenor banjo: each one recorded his part at home, Don in Australia, myself in Italy. We enjoyed a lot!

I've recorded this short tune to test a tenor banjo, a six-string banjo and a guitar, after a job on their rusted strings. It seems they sound good now. Somebody could wonder why I didn't replace those strings: the matter is that I've found all my stock of strings widely rusted (Thomastik-Infeld excluded). I'm very disappointed about that, in addition I've found only one set with no rust at a domestic music store . The other 5/6 were rusted!!

This band was called "New Orleans Meeting". I was in the lineup with my tenor banjo...lot of fun not so far from the N.O. atmosphere, IMO.

From a CD recorded by my friend Paolo Botti with Betty Gilmore (and others not playing in this track). That's a nice mix of Traditional Jazz, Modern Jazz and Blues.
