Oscar Pettiford's classic blues original is a true swinger. By this time, Kenny Drew and Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen had been part of the house rhythm section at the Montmartre Jazzhouse in Copenhagen for almost three years, and knew each other in and out. NHØP plays the complicated theme in complete unison with the piano – not a single note is missing – and demonstrates great drive both during the accompaniment and in his eight solo choruses.
