A blurt from everyone signals the beginning of this sprint. Lightcap rumbles around on the low notes while Wilson rummages through his cymbals and higher-tuned toms. Lederer’s tenor and D’Angelo alto eke out a few declaratory phrases before going off into some frenzied blowing. Wilson is still making a lovely racket with the cymbals and toms but the free-for-all doesn’t go on for long and the brief theme is revisited as the coda.

“Compact Jazz” was a series used by Verve records to issue some of their back catalog on CD for the first time, but this is more like my ideal for the term. A hundred and forty-one seconds is all it took for Wilson & Co. to leave a mark.
