East Hennepin Swing

Bass-Jeff Engholm
Recording engineer: JR Hammond

Over the years, I have played many gigs in East Hennepin or the nearby North-East Minneapolis area. So, that terrain has a certain vibe for me. For many of those years, we had a weekly gig at The Times Bar in East Hennepin.

This type of “swing” is very much descendant from Django but I have always put a bit of my own spin on these sorts of tunes and am glad to have done so in retrospect.

The guitar improv has a lot of brio and includes some species of what a close musician friend of mine calls “signature sextuplet butterflies.”

(I’ll take that as a compliment with crossed fingers)

Headphones help, especially on acoustic bass line.

Be kind.
