I like it.  I used to listen WReport for skiing... on my sony walkman cassette player.  I'm no fan of fast for fast sake but you channeled WR well.  thnx for posting.

Outstanding!  Really enjoyed the Manhattan Trasnfer singing this. You've really done it justice.

I love hearing the banjo take on challenging material like this and heading off for parts unknown.

Very cool version of a great song!

Love Jaco's bass line on this tune, (almost wore the grooves out of the original vinyl). What great playing. Thanks for posting!

Superb- after years of enjoying the guitar version- Only now hearing this banjo rendition do I realize why it is called birdland, as your banjo playjng and chirping really brings out the bird nuance
Thanks for the posts
