This song explodes with a fantastic bass solo by Jaco Pastorius. His dexterity is mighty, and he shows why he was one of the greatest to ever touch a bass. I wish this lineup was recorded more because of the way Tony Williams's hi-hat propels the group through the swing section. My only real complaint about this song is that some of the keyboards used by Zawinul sound a little cheesy. But overall this is still a great Weather Report song, and swings more than most in their catalog.
