    Pete Martin, always a Maestro! and David, you're not afraid to use the tremolo, when I hear you, I hear a mandolinist playing jazz with a mandolin...I love it!

    Nice one Pete.! Did I hear a small Perdido snippet at around one minute?

    David, great version. I'm always struck by the Jethro sound in your playing. You sound great!

    I took a Gypsy Jazz class with Matt Flinner last year. I thought I would try to play the transcription of Django's solo that Matt had for this one on the first chorus solo. I don't have the timing just right, but most of the notes are in there. Thanks.

    I got to catch Matt, Ross, and Eric at a house concert in Longmont Colorado last night. Those guys are always amazing.

    Thanks for the compliment!

    Sweet take, Lawrence. Swinging!

    Evidently that class paid off.

    This is way the most challenging and way the most fun of the Jazz tunes of the month so far.

    So many new challenges - for example I find myself more frequently looking at what my right hand is doing with the picking than at my left hand on the finger board, for example here's the first tune I've ever tried on mando where the end of the note is almost more important than its beginning. As well as more familiar challenges - eg trying to get the timing right on the head, trying to fit lines to the ii V I changes as they flash by 2 to the bar.

    But most of all putting up something after Aaron Weinstein's amazing piece. Nevertheless somebody has to do something to encourage a few more of the 20 people who voted in this poll - I doubt if many of you are better than Aaron - but hey! most of you must be better than me ...
