    Well, somebody ought to do it.

    These tunes are just as demanding as any other so I don't know why they're neglected. I'm tempted to say it's because they can't be played by banging out pentatonics and blues sounds, but I better not :-)

    Eh-hem, which tunes are you referring to? Haha. I didn't feel like working on the last one. I have this one all memorized and ready to go thru the keys. I thought the continuity on your solo was good, maybe a high point that I've heard so far. I think you always do a good job of interpreting the melody because it's a good mix of as written but a bit jazzed up.
