This early 1950s track by the Stan Getz Quintet not only features the agile swinging of one of the most popular tenorists of the day, but also spotlights the gritty valve trombone of Bob Brookmeyer and the swinging, percussive piano of John Williams. The way Getz develops the riff he plays behind Brookmeyer into the leading phrase of his own chorus is simply brilliant.
