Rico and Nils - Take 2

Enrico Tomasso (trumpet/vocals) ; Nils Solberg (guitar).

More Louis Armstrong music as played by Rico with, on this occasion, Nils Solberg adding his tasty Eddie Lang, Carl Kress etc. guitar licks and solos from afar.

The format has become standardised and non the worse for that. Rico warms up, introduces his guest, blows some Armstrong associated numbers over the backing, knocks back some beer, says hello to family and friends who have commented, tells a story or two related to the song, knocks back some more beer and blows some of the best classic jazz trumpet playing I've heard for many  a year as well as throwing in some vocals to give his lip a rest!


Jeepers Creepers: Margie; Rockin' Chair; Lover Come Back to Me were this week's killer-dillers (I speak zee lingo) with the latter tune the big one.
Lance
PS: For once, the stop choruses that Facebook throws in carte blanche were relatively few this week!
