One of my favorite performances of this song. Sy Smith is great. But the band! Are you kidding me? These guys are off-the-charts talented and super-fun to watch.

Seven Eight

What a joy to discover Ola Gjeilo (pronounced Yay-lo)! Where have I been? Seven Eight is a remarkable piece written in 7/8 time. Try to count it! The song consists of three tracks, each one played by Ola and laid on top of each other.
