At which point you will probably have noticed that I don't have that many Dizzy Gillespie or Charlie Parker tunes in the list. Actually, there's a handful of 'em but I am still struggling to get them past the forty-beat-per-minute tempo range so I can play 'em in public without raising an alarm or being shouted off the beach by a horde of giggling unsympathetic folks. Still, you have to admit that I do have some nice music here, even if it's stuff I haven't memorized in all twelve keys.

And then we still have this problem of personnel: like it's just me & my imagination so far here.
