Solo Version of "Cherokee" (Vote for me!)

If you have enjoyed and learned from the blog (and you also appreciate my playing), I'm reaching out to you! Recently I posted about the First Annual Charlie Parker Cutting Contest being hosted by 12th Jump Street broadcast out of Kansas City. I've made my own entry, and I'd like to ask you to please take a listen and vote for me if you like. For anyone who is feeling really dedicated, you can actually vote once a day, so if you happen to remember to vote on repeated days that would be great.  One sax player out of the top five vote getters will be invited to come play during the Charlie Parker Tribute radio show which is the rebroadcast by NPR, so it's kind of a big deal. Voting happens through Monday, August 6th, so please send me some love now and later!

Here is my near minute video (according to submission guidelines 30 seconds to a minute was all they wanted).

You can vote for me by visiting the entries page, clicking on my entry (make sure to click on me, Ben, because there is also a Benjamin), and clicking vote. Thanks!
