Guisganderie by Jean Jean?? - I just don't get it. The track sounds like a
Big Band Swing hit from the 40's that Woody Herman would have written not a
Classical Composer like Jean Jean.

Any history on this work? I didn't know what the heck Genre to place it in -
Woodwinds (Classical), Jazz - Big Band, Symphonic (Classical again) ,
General Jazz? What are your thoughts asto genre for it. (they don't have a
Showcase Soloist genre ;)

You can hear it at :

Featuring Joze Kotar (really good playing) with band.

I just can't play JeanJean's etudes and think that he wrote something like

David Blumberg
