Sweet Georgia Brown

“Sweet Georgia Brown” is an old blues / US forties’ swing / jazz / country / bluegrass and European Gypsy standard: always an amusing challenge because it has some speed! So even I tried myself, supported by a brave tractor friend and a Swedish flat-picking guitarist, to upload a version:

some YouTube examples, introducing different music styles:
2 – Kai Heumann and Mike Reinhardt, Gypsy Swing:

3 – Ella Fitzgerald & Duke Ellington orchestra

4 – Steve Caddick & Nathan Hanna with Avalon New England Jazz BanjoFest at the DoubleTree Hilton in Bedford, MA on 9/15/12

5 – Bjorn Thoroddsen and Tommy Emmanuel

6 – Django Reinhardt NYC Festival 2004

7 – Swedish version “med traktorkomp” uploaded by janakeragnar views (till now:) 2,114,591

8 – Oscar Peterson Trio

  1. I really love your swinging, toe-tapping version, Frizz. 🙂


  2. I wonder which version is the one that the Harlem Globetrotters use the most?

  4. ich hoffe ich schaffe es mal meinen traktor als rhythmisches instrument aufzunehmen, der takt könnte durch verstellung des handgashebels in seiner frequenz angepaßt werden, welche frequenz wäre dir am liebsten ?


Hearing from you makes my day!
