Robert Glasper and E.J. Strickland start this song off with a nice introduction. This composition firmly establishes why Marcus Strickland is one of the most in-demand saxophonists in New York City and abroad. His sound is very inviting here and evokes definite moments of Wayne Shorter, while twin brother E.J. plays around the beat. The band creates a deep, swinging groove on this one. A great performance.
