  2. Based on the classic gypsy jazz standard Bossa Dorado by Dorado Schmitt. I had a dream that my group played this as a tango. Woke up and played it as I heard it. I used the recording app Soundtrap to record a rhythm and then lead. Listen to Tango Dorado EC by user827948939 on #SoundCloud https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/j56b

  6. Harbour Lights by Hugh Williams. 1937 (same year my Wheatsone was made).
  7. I am very fortunate to have studied with both Boris and Sergei Matueswitch. The method that Boris used to teach is invaluable and I use the same method and materials he did to teach. It stands the test of time and my students can offer testimony to it. That said, all of his music was hand written. Many of my students have a lot of difficulty with the hand written music. So recently I've been using the program MuseScore and notating his music in a printed format. I've primarily focused on music for my students and a few for some more advanced players I know that appreciate the challenge.
  8. This isn't my regular band. There was a weekly Monday night gypsy jazz jam in a church in Bethesda MD. We haven't played together in probably 5-6 months. My regular band mates were unavailable so I called these guys. I made a set list from the Django Fakebook and some tunes we all know and we just jammed. I know it's odd for an EC in this genre but man do I love to swing! Thanks for your comments.
  9. Gypsy Jazz Jam Porch Concert on Aug 30th. Excuse the misspelling on YouTube. Auto spell.
  10. That's a very cool story. One more then though I can't top this one David. I was playing in Brooklyn Heights when a guy asked if I could play some sea shanties and hornpipes. I played a few and he asked for my contact info. A few weeks later he called and we recorded music for an off Broadway play called Sea Scape (I think). Didn't pay much but seemed like Kizmet at the time.
  11. I've had several. Recitals at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center. Playing onstage for the Broadway show Carmelina. My 15 minute moment is recording with John Lennon and Yoko Ono for their LP Double Fantasy. Spending 2 hours in the recording studio Fantasy Factory with John and Yoko and his producer Jack Douglas. Yoko and young Shaun used to come hear me play at Cafe Trilussa in the Village in NYC in the 80s.
