    Welcome, Andy. Great tune to start off a chilly Monday morning, at least where we are.

    I have to say, one of the best things for me about Mandolin Cafe. I like the variety of musicians you have presented and
    continue to present.

    Thank you for adding Mandolin Mondays to our lives! The series has become such a fixture, and Mondays are much easier with these great tunes.

    Nice, love mando Mondays, missed some but catch it when I can. I recommend it because always after I listen I play my mando!

    Congratulations on this wonderful series. And great to hear you play again. I worked on that tune as arranged on tenor banjo when I took lessons with Roy Smeck. I love your arrangement especially that part with "Yankee Doodle Dandy" in counterpoint to the other melody.

    This sounds so good! Solly is amazing, and I never get tired of seeing him effortlessly tear through swing tunes.

    It's great to see Chris here playing his lovely piece. I recall meeting him, and doing workshops with him at the Mandolin Symposium in Santa Cruz. At that tine, he shared with us many of his pieces from his studies in London.

    Really lovely all the way around!
    I especially liked that little run just before the 1 minute mark.

    I was stationed in the Netherlands back in the 80's, witnessed strong blues and jazz influences everywhere (North Sea Jazz festival - incredible!).

    That was as tasty and precise as it gets Sir! You could probably find a few folks lined up for a double stop lesson should you choose to teach one.
