Thanks for listening - feedback welcomed!


Man, that’s a great track Stuart. Love it! Makes me want to get to summer and my city’s Jazz In The Park festival. Kind of reminds me of some of the old big band stuff I used to listen to as a kid.

Thanks Matt! Agree, there is something about Big Band Music that is so much fun. Spent a lot of time in the Rhythm Section on Piano and Guitar. It’s pretty awesome playing in the middle of so much sound.
