Genre: Unknown/None Chosen / Playing Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)

OK folks, this is a bit of History- the band where I got my start in Bluegrass (the term applied loosely to this band). It was a sort of NGR style jam band in the mid-1970s. I wish I could claim the banjo picking here, but I played bass in this outfit. Banjo is the one and only Dr. Tom Adler, Tim Moody on mandolin and fiddle, Dan Vanada on guitar.

We were just a bunch of hippie college kids at the time. This tune was recorded live on radio station WART (yes really!) in Indianapolis Indiana in 1978 when we were featured on their live Bluegrass Hour.

This clip is a partial rendition of the full work intended to demonstrate for BHO members how a 40s big band tune can be adapted to the banjo.

Yep, it sure does sound like a kind of period piece. Really fun to listen to - with all those cool references and transitions. Thanks.

Nice note, Bob, and it's great to hear "Caravan" again and see that it can be sampled here on Banjo Hangout!  -- Tom A.

Great rendition of one of the greatest tunes of all time-the mandolin solo's are my favourite. The banjo harmonics fit nicely into the arrangement as well. and what does he say at the end there? - "Get back to the desert on your camel!" ha ha -thats classic...
