Listen to a "live" performance of  the new arrangement of "Tenderly" with the trio. A guitar solo leads into a swing rhythm with the bass and drums a la Ray Brown and Shelley Manne. Somewhat reminiscent of a Barney Kessel (one of Lou's favorite guitarists) production.

Hear the "guitar choir" backing the melody on an alternate take of "Spanish Harlem" from the "Undercovers" CD.

There is also a 3 guitar rendition of Lou's "Can You Hear That?". And more... like the almost finished groove of "Gretsch Groove"

This episode features a visit to the studio with guitar playing "live" to tracks of the rhythm section from the new CD, "Remembering Ol' Blue Eyes".

 Lou talks about his first harmony and arranging teacher and writing a new harmony or different chord structure for a melody. The standard tune, "It Could Happen To You" is played to show this "re-harmony".  

Rhythm grooves and combinations are discussed and demonstrated on an up-tempo arrangement of "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise".

There is also a new rendition of Lou's "Sweet Miss 'T'" with two guitars.
