Hi !

I'm sorry for doing this, it is not perfect but I enjoyed it and still enjoy it, great tune.
First time I play it, I took the New Book and said : "Come on you've never tried to play it because the phrases were too long, let's try it !"

I'm sorry for Jimmy Giuffre, I hope wherever you are, you forgive me.

I like the feel and drive of your improvisation and really like your alto tone. It has texture and depth and is not overly bright, beautiful! The theme needs some work at places, but it's not an easy one to capture. Well done Lionel. :)

Lionel,
Good job man, that's not an easy tune at any tempo. And as for Jimmy Giuffre, I'd think he'd be happy that someone was still enjoying and playing his tunes.

Jimmy would be very proud that his music is living on. He would be very happy to hear you.

Jimmy was my teacher for two years.
Such an amazing musician and I am very honored to have had the opportunity to study with him.
His playing, his writing, his arranging, everything ——-just outstanding!
His tone in person, was so voice-like. Airy with so much character.

Thanks very much for your very nice comments. There is no word to explain what I am feeling when I read them.
