Joe "Fingers" Busch.







Thank you. I do matinees on Saturdays too.
Busch eventually left Capitol for Warner Bros. Records where he took on the same general responsibilities. Busch returned to arranging and conducting responsibilities again, one of the most notable being the musical force behind comic singer Allan Sherman.

Gram's Mom loved his fingering, particularly his "Capstan Screw," and judicious use of the elbow.




Or so I have read.

Wow. When was the last time you saw a tile floor like that?

Reminds me of when I was a kid playing in my grampa's basement.
