This represents a number of firsts for me - not that it's where I'm going, but it's kinda cool doing something new. This one is a big band jazz standard - I don't know who wrote it but there are tons of big bands on YouTube doing this song. Here's the version I used to figure out the parts and arrangement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuCPBeSBnHk
My daughter played a version for me and I immediately thought - hey this sounds more rock n roll than big band and I thought I'd have a go at recording it myself. Now, I'm not a horn player so I've figured out the horn parts by ear and translated them to guitar. Added some drums and bass and voila - a guitar version of a big band jazz standard. So what's new you ask - it's a cover (never done one here), it's a jazz standard (again never done one), it's a big band tune done entirely on guitar (new for me) and it's just me (Dave) this time - no collaborators, just me, my guitars and a whack load of tracks!! Hope you dig it.
SPECIAL THANKS - to Greg Hurley who ran the final mix through his awesome Abbey Road tape plugin!!
