Larry Koonse solo – “Deep Sleep”

Here’s a solo by the great guitarist Larry Koonse on the tune “Deep Sleep”, from the CD “Eastern View” by tenor saxophonist David Sills. This tune is based on the changes to “You Stepped Out Of A Dream.” Lots of great bebop lines and rhythmic displacement in this solo.
