A catchy tune based on "Confirmation" changes. Special guest Joe Lovano's thoughtful solo toys with the rhythm, staccato jabs mixing with overtoned shrieks. Slagle follows insinuatingly in his distinctive free-bop style. Stryker enters blues-inflected with added Wes Montgomery chording. Robust exchanges between spark-plug Hart and the frontline players leads to the theme's satisfying reprise. Stryker and Slagle's over two-decade association continues to enrich us.
