The use of electric piano, with bass as the melodic instrument, gives a totally different feel from the original to this lesser known Horace Silver tune. Bojan Z (aka Zulfikarpasic) soon switches to acoustic piano and takes the leading voice as the drums join in. He later returns to the Fender Rhodes, but in each instance he builds a relaxed, funky mood, and the interaction between the three instruments contributes to a very personal group sound and also makes one wonder why there are so few covers of this tune.
