    It's a while since I posted - life has been full of 'stuff' that got in the way of music-making but at last it looks like I have some time to get into some recording. Here's the first thing I've been able to record in quite a while, an old swing tune which lots of you will know, called "Bye Bye Blues". It's a fun wee tune, with a chord sequence which is fun to improvise over. You can find it here -
