My good buddy Wes Funderburk brought this clip to my attention last week on tour with Boston Brass.  I can't say I've ever heard a solo banjo with big band clip before but I was blown away.  This guys groove, phrasing and articulation are simply stunning. And there is simply no possible way to fake a smile like that one.  Not possible.
