As to the origin of this composition, Jeanfrançois says: "My Main Man refers to my father, Jeanpierre Prins. He always loved big bands (Duke and Basie of course, but also Lunceford and Hampton . . . ). So the idea for the tune was to give a trio impression of a big band tune."
This is great material for the intermediate to advanced guitarist looking to expand their harmonic vocabulary.
