i thought jazz was the catch-all genre when songs don't fit anywhere else?

Yes, but every jazz band I've ever played in did "Night In Tunisia".

Another "Jazz Standard".

^^^ that many strings on a guitar would only give me an opportunity to play more wrong notes at the same time ;)

Totally not getting the reason for those extra strings!  He didn't use them so, to me, they would just make using the high six that he did use that much more difficult...

Yepes is not using the Extra strings in the Song posted above.

He has been   using the strings by playing special  classic arrangements on the 10 string  guitar.

The 10-string Guitar of Narciso Yepes (Part I): Tuning & Resonance ('Overtones'); Fritz Buss 19/35

Robert Dickinson | "Le Sang d'Isolde" | Viktor van Niekerk, 10-string guitar

Claudio Monteverdi | "Si dolce è'l tormento" | Viktor van Niekerk, 10-string guitar

While compiling a 'fake disk' for Band-in-a-Box, we ran across this version of Henry Mancini's "Charade". I never cared for the song by Mancini, although I like a lot of his other work, but this version I really like. It is done by a bunch of Italians who seem to have a very good understanding of how to play Brazilian stye music.

Charade - Nicola Conte

My pleasure.

That was the first version of Charade I ever found interesting. One of my tests of a well crafted song is that it will stand up to completely different treatments. Don't get me wrong, I like tons of music that won't stand up to that test, but I have a special appreciation for those that do.

I like a lot of Mancini work, especially when he was doing Cool School era jazz like this.

The Brothers Go To Mothers - Henry Mancini
