Looking for Betty MacDonald: Soundtrack for Book Promo Video

The soundtrack for this book-promotion video is based on a composition I wrote in the early-swing/hot-jazz style of Django Reinhardt—hence its name, “Go, Django, Go.” I played guitar on the track and engaged musicians Cary Black (acoustic bass and shaker) and Linda Waterfall (piano). Producer Vaun Raymond hired Steven O’Brien (trumpet), and I led the group in arranging the recording.
