GUEST,J Blues Mandolin (50) RE: Blues Mandolin 03 Oct 05

In 1978 I opened for Martin, Bogan and the Armstrongs and Carl Martin played the mandolin, Ted Bogan played an old Gibson f-hole guitar, Howard played fiddle. I can't recall what the upright player's first name was, but he was phenomenal. Very understated. I think he was Howard's younger brother or maybe his nephew. Jamming 'Sweet Georgia Brown' and 'Sentimental Journey' in the backroom between sets still ranks as my alltime favorite 'musical' moment. When Carl Martin smiled after one of my breaks and said to Ted Bogan, "This boy's been doin' his homework", it still makes me well up.

Ry Cooder recorded some real good blues mando tunes, too.
