I wonder if you can give us some insight into a couple of fairly common things:
1) The classic Hot Club ending that starts on the 5, moves down a half-step, then proceeds up chromatically (e.g., '37 Minor Swing). It seems a simple thing, but seems too to be troublesome for a lot of folks (I've just got a grip on it myself, after a long, embarrassing journey), and I'm sure you can elucidate it for us-whether to start on an upstroke or downstroke, how you count the beats, etc. I'm thinking here of chordal playing, not single note lines, by the way.
2) I'd love to hear your take on the Latin rhythms we all use, but specifically the bossa. I caught a bit of you playing For Sephora while you were here, and you seem to have really digested the feel of it-any thoughts?
