I just came across this while researching something to play at the local folk club I belong to.
This piece is just a (big) bit beyond my reach! Great playing, enjoy.
I'd like to know who it is that's playing. Sounds like a C chromatic to me?

If I had to guess, even though its folk, that sounds like Howard to me.

Some folks aren't impressed by Howard--I am!

This is a Yiddish "gig tune", I do this one--I even know the intro verse, thanks to Phil Shopoff (and Stone's Throw) {this reference is for Ted} . . .

If it's Howard, is this all played on a diatonic then? I'm trying to get my head around how fluent all the runs are. Simply amazing
I'm with you Gnarly

Oy, I remember Stone's Throw indeed. Great vintage jazz band in San Diego in the 70s

Sounds like it's being played on a Low F.
