I really like Scott Hamilton's version of Flamingo that was linked to on the first page of this thread. It's got a great swing tempo and I just found out that it was recorded with a British rhythm section in my home town of Farnham in 2005.

Anyway, I made a BiaB backing track in the same key and tempo and used Scott's first chorus as a starting point for my tenor recording.

If you haven't already seen it you may want to check out " Great Scott " on you tube : an hour and a half documentary of his story . I was lucky enough to swap a few e mails with him a few years back and keep promising myself to catch up at his Dean St Pizza Express residency on New Years Eve....

I'm talking on another thread about not being a jazz follower : this is about as far as it goes...a great player with a wonderful sense of melody... :)

I love what you've done with the backing track and really enjoyed listening to your playing, thank you. Look forward to the alto transcription too.
