Hi Al:

IMO many kids do not know what swinging is. <grin>

Don't get me wrong, I think Tyler and the banjoist are superb. However  
the chosen tempo is very difficult to swing and  am of the opinion  
that they are not swinging in that they are not relaxed. Too many  
notes and gimmicks for me. Too choppy as I hear it and rhythmically  

IMO, to hear Tyler (on bass this time) swing go to:
