Subject: RE: What does 'dueling' instruments mean?
I believe Mbo is correct about the origin of the tune in question. The idea of an instrumental feud is an old one though. You see it in the film version of Amadaeus and you hear it in every good hot or bebop jazz cut. For a great "duel" catch the film "Crossroads" with a dubbed duel by Steve Vai. Great stuff.
