For every banjoist, who likes Far East sounding jazz tunes the new tenor banjo folio "The China Folio" could be interesting. This folio will be published in two volumes. Each volume will include 15 hot and jazzy tunes with an Oriental or Asian touch. As always you have an piano accompaniment in three different tempi. These are the songs: Chan A Song Of China, Chine We Owe A Lot To You, Chinawaren, Chin Chin Chinaman, Chinese Moon, Ching Chong, Ching-a Ling's Jazz Bazar, Chu Chin Chow, Hindustan, Idle Dreams, In A Street Of Chinese Laterns, Indian Butterfly, My Chinese Cherry Blossom, My Dreamy China Lady and Lena From Palesteena. What the Oriental Fox Trot sounds like, you can check out, when you are going to try my arrangment of "Hindustan".

This sounds like a really good book of tunes. I love the banjo and I love China. To put the two together in a jazz number is a dream. I must have it, how can I buy it?
