a classic if there ever was one

Daniel Callaway says:

Such a terrific rendition of such a cool piece. The "dueling" violin and guitar brought that piece to life initially and it kept rolling from then on. It's almost impossible to not want to snap your fingers, tap your foot or clap along. Drum solo was awesome. He brought Buddy's spirit out on that hi-hat. The ability of these talented musicians to mesh the way that they do almost makes me speechless, especially during the 2/4 changing to 4/4 and back. The passion felt in each note is musicality at its finest.

Marcelo Calixto says:

Don´t get me wrong I absolutely love blues, and understand it. but I still don´t get Jazz, it seems to be very deep, the metrics, I´m still learning to try to understand it. Seems to be much more complex. Isn´t it?

Not too many musicians would be willing to follow Mark O'Connor. Wynton Marsalis has the personal music cred and security to follow anybody. What a group!
