Genre: Jazz / Playing Style: Other

I just improvised a banjo version of the jazz standard (without fingerpicks to get a mellower sound), and then added electric bass afterwards. It is kind of sloppy, and I mainly don't play jazz on the banjo, but thought I would put it out there anyway. I did record it without click track or any ProTools "fixing" (so maybe that could be a consideration against it being judged too harshly for the sloppyness factor). For some really great jazz banjo (in a traditional bop oriented style), listen to Tom Slavicek. His tunes were posted at Andrew Conde's hangout page, but since that page is non-functioning at present, I've re-posted them on my music page with Tom's permission.

OH! you played the single banjo track first!(shoulda read the fine print..LOL). . I think this kinda thing this stuff comes from what your instantly feeling so yeah, just improvin solo with no comp, I thought ya did a fine job!..Liked your choice of chord voicings for sure. Cool bassline fits well.

Hope someday to be able to lower my sloppiness to that level. As far as improv, no chance. Fine work.
