I may have to expand my list to three, as Red Holloway presents an insistent and playful take on the classic. The leader comes blasting right off the line, setting the tone with the sax and organ workin' it in unison. At each solo turn, the energy from the previous chorus is passed along and taken up a notch. Before we return the head, we've had sax, guitar, organ, and drum workouts that are constructed from barely contained pure joy. Played in a club, it wouldn't be hard to imagine the thunderous shouts and applause. Take a bow, fellas.
