A bit over a year ago I composed Blackhawk Blues for the North Buncombe Middle School Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Mary Jo Sparrow. Last week I finally got around to finishing a demo recording of it. I made this recording with my own equipment and with only four players. I’m performing all the brass parts and the piano. Frank Southecorvo played all the sax parts. The bass part is played by Michael Gamble and drums by Justin Watt. I’d like to thank Frank, Michael, and Justin for playing those parts for me.[audio:http://www.wilktone.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Blackhawk-Blues.mp3|titles=Blackhawk Blues]
