Hi All DJMLer's!

I struggled with PANAMA for a long time and finally put together what I call the "complete" version, using sources that are available in both printed and recorded format, at least the normal ones I could find.  It consists of five 5)strains up front, with a mid key- change from Eb to Ab, a rpeat of the second strain except in Eb (sometimes used for solos) and then the final, usual descending last chorus repeated twice with the "gut-bucket trombone" ending. 

I figured that, with all the different srtains thrown in together, a guy could at least get thru the tune no matter what format the band does!!  Most bands do not use all 5 strains and tend to mix up the format in different ways and keys - my version gives a substitute player at least a fighting chance!!

Would be happy to sen a copy to any one off list if interested.
