I'm back in the land of proper computers and able to listen to some more recordings.
That's a fun version and proof that a good tune can work in lots of different styles. Your playing gets better and better, so I'm looking forward to more recordings.I wish there was a way to erase a post, because I've recorded a new version this morning. It supersedes the old one. The old file was replaced, covering up that shameful abuse of the F# key with new outrageous things. BOTM/SOTM are great exercises for me, since I'd never play most of the songs.

I'd love to hear that - are you going to share a recording with us ?I've played this tune before on soprano sax, tenor sax and clarinet using an arrangement out of the Hal Leonard's Ultimate Fake Book I think, but I gave the BOTM arrangement a blast yesterday on my 33 year old 62 series Yamaha alto with a Peter Ponzol Custom Neck and a late 1960s Brilhart Level Air 4* mouthpiece with Rovner ligature and a Rico Select Jazz 2M reed and it sounded pretty good including the high E...excellent arrangement and backing tracks.
I noticed it says Lincolnshire Posy, spending most days in Lincolnshire I looked it up, he visited Lincolnshire in 1905-1906 and collected a number of folk songs on his travelsI would like to share with others a bit of my musical experience playing in a wonderful university concert band during the years 1966 - 1970. One of the most moving works we performed was Percy Grainger's beautiful arrangement of the tune "Danny Boy" which he entitled "Irish Tune From County Derry". This recording was made by the Dallas Wind Symphony.
Sounding good. God blend, and some fine top E's.Here is a rather rough draft of what I'm doing. All the tracks will be re-recorded.
