The head splits into two parts, the first segment with a fast-moving “Night In Tunisia” vibe. The second, a descending tumble of lines. It's a perfect setup for the segues into solos. It's tough to pick a favorite solo here, mostly because my ears are really partial to the trombone. But still, the nod has to go to Zick, who takes great liberties with time, stretching ideas across bar lines and generally pushing the energy level quite high - so much so that when the head reappears, it seems almost sad because you know the song is about to end. Great stuff.
