Miles and company deliver a stellar performance. Al Foster's drumbeat is almost MPC-like as he keeps up a steady, bright crack on his snare. Miller's bassline provides Davis and Evans the perfect funk groove to solo over. In its simplicity, with only a 2-chord vamp, this song planted the seed for what would be heard later in hip hop.
