Album Notes
Good Music For You is the new monthly digital track-drop from the Panorama Jazz Band, an all-acoustic party outfit from New Orleans. The sounds come from anywhere people like to play, dance and celebrate: especially New Orleans, the Caribbean, Latin America and Eastern Europe.

"Serpent Maigre" (aka "Sepan Meg") is a biguine from the repertoire of Martiniquan clarinetist Alexandre Stellio (1885-1939) who led a band in Paris in the 1920s and '30s. Charlie discovered it a couple years ago on a biguine compilation he ran across and we started messing around with it at our weekly gigs.

Steve's "pocky way" tuba groove gives this reading a New Orleans second line feel, Aurora takes the solo on the A section at the repeat of the form. Listen for Charlie's hot obligato behind the reeds on both B sections.

Recorded April 7th, 2014 @ Gasa Gasa, New Orleans, LA.
