I always loved Benny Goodman's version of Frankie & Johnny so tried it myself. Starts off kind of slow and builds steam as it goes.

I did a little reharm to the standard adding a Am to C7 twist. I just liked the sound of it.

Well done Cade.
I really enjoyed that.

It reminded me, in the sense of your timing, of an early Keith Jarrett trio album I have. The reason being, I think sometimes you were dragging behind the beat. It's very effective, whether you intended to or not!
