My interpretation of this jazz standard. I had to pick up the tempo a bit to make it work 'cos my horn has 5 strings!

That's the way Charlie woulda played it if he played banjo. Ya! Fine arrangement there Laurence! Now get back in that closet and crank out some more tunage!!!

One of my favorites.  Great improvand timing.  Unlike a lot of 5 string jazz, this sounds like you have adapted the banjo to the song rather than the song to the banjo.

Commenting on your work is always an exercise in finding an appropriate superlative. "Fabulous" will have to suffice for this one!
