Instrumental, Jazz Music, Ragtime
Celtic inspired, joyous, soaring melody played on mandolin and supported by bodhran and guitars in the first half smoothly changes to a whistled alternate melody supported by organ, bodhran and guitars in the second half.

Somewhere between Duke Ellington and the "Star Wars" cantina band is this swing instrumental, which uses diatonic and bass harmonicas instead of horns. Melodic, left-of-center and it swings... Instrumental, Jazz Music, Swing Ensembles

A smooth but smoldering midtempo groove drives this song with acoustic guitar providing the melody line and a nice "call and response" with keyboards.
