  • January 13, 2020 Well arranged easily playable and some history

    Sometimes I get calls to play "themed" parties and provide background music. It is always great to have a song book handy for those times that you can just pick up and play... the song book is great mix of folk songs, easy listening, old blues, early Dixieland kind of...

    tunes. Also, I have bought some individual arrangements from Glenn Weiser and they are always gig ready and playable... he's done the heavy lifting.
