I love this tune! Thanks for this version, Eddy and Happy Birthday! Here's a version we recorded with Charlie Halloran taking the lead and it's one of my favorite things we did.

Hey you guys, thanks so much for looking and John, you guys sure got that sound down. John Gill has a band in the New York Hot Jazz Festival this coming Sunday where I'm playing with it and your Trombone Player Charlie is playing with us. There is also what they are calling a Banjo Summit, which is myself, Cynthia Sayer and "Blind Boy" Paxton. We'll have to get you up here one of these days to join us John.
