Saxophonist David Sanborn won a Grammy for this infectiously catchy opening track from his 1987 album A Change Of Heart. The tune is a good example of Sanbornís oft-imitated R&B-inflected jazz sound, here paced by Marcus Millerís funky bass and complemented by Hiram Bullockís rockish guitar. After hearing this once, you wonít get the hook out of your head.
