Robert Parker, sound engineer

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Parker_(sound_engineer)

 
    Have Parker's techniques been applied to old classic-banjo recordings? He had a Public Radio program in the '80s of jazz from Edison cylinders and up through 78 RPM, and the fidelity is remarkable.

"Panama"

Does anyone have the sheet music for "Panama" by William H Tyers?  I'd like to try making a banjo arrangement. I think it may sit well on the banjo in its original key of F major.  But I can't find a copy. Piano performances on youtube are too fast.…See More
