"Lucky Seven" is acoustic jazz/funk in 7/4. It's a great example of the DHQ's ability to make the odd meter sound down home and natural. This track features killer solos from the low end – Eubanks, Holland and Smith. Dave demonstrates his uncanny ability to play over the barline and Nate Smith sounds strong enough to (almost) make one forget Billy Kilson for a few minutes.
