    I like the bossa. You have a nice feel with it!

    OK here's my shot at Lady Be Good. Definitely some parts I'm not crazy about, but I got tired of doing it over.
    I used the backing track I have in iReal Pro since it was handy.
    I'm a bluegrasser (and had to throw a little Monroe lick in there) but I've had fun working on some jazz tunes and am looking forward to continuing on with this series. Thanks to all!

    Here's my submission for January clams & all. I recorded several different times with varying degrees of improv but this one had the least mistakes, although there are plenty to choose from. This is so challenging for me but it has made me really listen & to focus on the task at hand. Thanks to all the contributors, especially Pete Martin. Can't wait to get started on next month!

    Here is a take I put together with the backing track. It's a great tune. I had to go back and listen to the Count Basie and the Kansas City Seven version. I have always loved how Basie plays on this one. He has such an amazing sense of timing, he seems like he is just dancing along. As Barry said above, thanks Pete for putting this together!

    Here is the Basie version:



    It lead me to another Basie/ Charlie Christian track, leading back to Crisscross's contribution.

    Hi everyone! New to Mandolin Cafe forum...was excited to find the jazz section and especially these tunes of the month. Here's my husband and I playing Lady Be Good. So fun to hear everyone's versions. Can't wait for next month's tune!

    ... and it has had much worse too! That was nice enough, Brian.

    We're not going to criticise those that "give it a go". Better to participate with something less than perfect than to not participate at all. I am still trying to figure out how to record myself. The local music store is offering a ProTools class this month so I am going to give that a try.

    I got over the cold and played around with it some in the bossa beat. Now on to 'Another You'. Thanks for listening.
