Laurence, you continue to carve a unique niche among uke players. I really enjoyed that one, as you built on 80+ years of jazz guitar. Thanks so much for all the great music.

It so easy for me to imagine Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli swinging out to this as only they could. You've really nailed that early Manouche flavor with this tune. It reminds me of Minor Swing. It has that same great feel to it.

Thanks so much guys! And yes, Django is the dominant influence here, proving that you dont't have to be a guitar player (although I am) to be influenced by him. yeah Paul - I imagined this as the B side of minor swing as I find myself addicted to the harmonic minor scale - glad you all hopped on board for this one!

Very nice Big L.

I trust you're keeping well and managing to avoid the "madding crowds".

Yes, I live on an island. Can’t say more without turning instantly political.
