    "Straight Ahead"(chosen one of the Best Jazz Recordings of 2020 thus far by the Chicago Tribune)also newer selections less often played by the band. Acoustic instruments, minimal talking, no singing, lots of good notes and numbers of the swinging variety along with the occasional choro, latin, or original.

    Looking forward to it!

    I'd request you to sing Witchcraft but I reckon if you aren't singing you can still pick it!
    Topsy would be a good one too!

    Thanks Donnie!

    Great show, great playing and excellent sound! It was interesting to see while hearing the different mandolins Don used. Even with some amplifier help for the acoustic instruments they sounded sweet and present, with a clear distinction between the Nugget snd Apitius.

    It was cool to hear new tunes, too, from "Noites Cariocas" to Tommy Flanagan's "Freight Trane".

    I just let the professionals handle camera and stuck with the main window. The only quibble is that Steve Rashid should bump up the talk microphones for chat between tunes. In my Firefox browser the music was a good, standardized play level, while the talking was very quiet. My main computer is connected to my hi-fi, so I could enjoy the playing in a good stereo.

    If streaming shows are here to stay, they should be available on TV channels, as most people have good sound for watching movies. (I'm a throwback, with an actual stereo hi-fi setup.) The other thing about streaming is we need an audience response channel, like clicking on an icon that generates applause, which could be heard by the players, and listeners as well.

    Keep,swinging, Donnie!
