I woulda liked to have been in the studio while you were recordin this. Just an excellent arr. all the way around. You really captured the musical ambience of this era .Well done!

Just awesome. That tune was my favorite when I was a little kid 4 or 5 years old. Still on my listening list. I was reared on Goodman, and the Sextet [Laurence is right; it was a septet, but called a sextet.] album (78s) was my favorite. Laurence, I never thought I'd hear that on the banjo; a wonderful rendition. I'm continually blown away by your playing and your mastery of multiple genres.

It just never really gets much better than Benny Goodman, I think my favorite tune of his was Slipped Disc, but you do such a great job with this tune, great harmonies, timings, all around killer playing!
