    Very nice.

    The pickup jumped out at me since it brings back memories of my dad on those rare occasions he'd clamp it onto his L-48 and plug in. Is that an L-4 you're playing?

    The DeArmond FHC "Guitar Mike" was very popular indeed. This one is dated October 1950, but they made them for many years virtually unchanged. The guitar is a 1947 L7.

    did you use a backing track? If so, which one? I like better than the ones I’ve been finding on the net.

    It's from Hal Leonard's Real Book backing tracks, vol. 1.

    thanks Kilgore. Last question, I promise. What kind of guitar and amp? I know the tone is in your technique mostly, But always curious about gear... I (try) to play jazz with my tele on the neck pickup and really like the tone, but not quite as airy or rich as yours.

    1947 Gibson L7 through a Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb reissue.

    Great playing … motifs, nice chordal punches, in’n’out. As an added bonus, with that FHC you have what for me is THE jazz guitar sound. Hats off to you.

    If I may, I’ll just add a performance of my big band … not happy about my tone (it was a poor little champ pushed on 12…) but I think it fits nicely here. It’s the same arrangement!

    Thanks for this. Great-sounding band. I played in a big band for a number of years that played that Basie arrangement, but we didn't do it nearly so well. The guitar really cuts through with that Freddie Green comping. Nice job.

    what a great performance! I love big bands. Not Many folks doing that these days. Lots of talent in that room.
