New Orleans & Medium Up Swing
My Uncle Bernie and his family lived in New Orleans. Our family would visit in the summer and they would show us the sights of the city that included my first trip to a jazz club, 'Preservation Hall', an unforgettable experience. This song combines the '2nd line feel' with straight ahead swinging on changes based on 'I Got Rhythm'. There are solos for Alto, Trumpet and the Drums are featured during the Shout Chorus.
