  5. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea - Harold Arlen [Mandolin]

    For our 85th weekly cover, here's a solo mandolin rendition of the jazz standard Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.

    This song has been recorded countless times by amazing folks, but I have always loved Don Stiernberg's version. I thought I would give it a try this week.

    Cheers!

  6. Jazz Guitar/Mandolin Duo - Alex Heflin & Bryan Dedlow

    This week's cover is a tune called Javier by Riner Scivally. It's a contrafact of the often played Softly, as in a Morning Sunrise.

    Riner is an incredible guitarist that both Bryan and I have had the pleasure of studying with.

    And this week on guitar we have Bryan Dedlow who stopped by my place this week. I'm incredibly happy to have him play on a tune. We played together frequently years ago and it's always a treat to hear him play!
