Nice Ellington set, Mr. McGasko. Did you ever catch the orchestra when they had a weekly gig at Birdland a few years ago, led by his grandson Paul? It was pretty solid. I read that the orchestra is playing somewhere in Manhattan tomorrow for Duke Ellington day.

Almost did a double take when you played one of my old favorites, the now very obscure "Riding The Range For Jesus, " a song covered by many gospel & country singers from the 50s through the 90s. Ironically, that song & the one before it, "Silver Spurs" were together on an obscure CD from the 90s by Slim Whitman & his son Byron. Homer would have done well singing it - had it been written a generation earlier.Except for the disaster & flu songs, nice stuff Joe.
