Hi all -
no. 7 in the Lockdown Ballad series, Old Folks, on my 10M with a Florida USA STM.
Don't worry, when I hit 10 you'll get some respite ;)

Very nice Tim, beautiful sound and fantastic recording quality.

I noticed you played it lower than Ben Webster, I think your take is in F concert (like the Don Byas recording). Good old Ben did record it in C concert (D for tenor), which key sounds in my ears a bit more vulnerable (but that's maybe due to the famous live version of Ben and Teddy Wilson). I did just post in another thread a version I recorded in January 2016, which is played in C concert (>here<).
I've always tried to be a 'tone' player, if that makes sense, so the improvisational process is very much about connecting with the sound of each individual note rather than scales etc...
Same for me Tim (but I play on a much lower level than you).
