"The Manhattan Minstrel" Eddy Davis playing and singing a 1931 song written by Harold Arlen and Ted Kohler. It was first recorded by Cab Calloway - introduced in the "Cotton Club" show "Rhythmania". There is a famous solo by Louis Armstrong. Davis is playing his Custom OME 12' head - 17 fret neck Tenor Banjo.
I think this is what I'm about -- Not the lyrics, but the Musical Attitude. ( A Minstrel)

Wonderful as always! And, as always, such amazing tone. Really makes me think hard about getting something with a 12” pot; love the warmth.
