This rollicking track is appropriately titled. The trio dances through this up-tempo tune that really does evoke images of ecstatically whirling Sufis. All three musicians play great solos; Holland demonstrates his graceful way of handling rhythms over the barline and Eubanks shows off his super-bad John McLaughlin- style chops. Cinelu manages to work up quite a head of steam despite the dynamic limitations of hand percussion. It is unfortunate that this band didn't survive to record more, but it was great while it lasted.
