    Dear Manny

    Thank you. Very well said :D Flight of the Bumble Bee is a great technical challange and exercise, and I just like the tune.

    I have the Harry James verson in an old Harry James method book that I like to go over. A lot of young people think because something is old they don't think it can be complex or a challange. If you can locate this book I urge anyone to try it out. Its fun and a challange.

    We all have to have a good strong foundation in music, whether it is Jazz or Classical because you HAVE TO know where you are coming from in order to know where you are going.

    In other words, if you disrespect the past and past great artists you have no roots. How can a tree grow and flourish with no roots?

    Mike,

    The Mortimer version is in fact by George Swift.
