This is quite possibly my favorite Dick Hamilton composition. Somehow I got my dad's taste in music, 20 years earlier than my tastes should have placed me. This is about as amazing a big brass with strings and amazing vocal chords, string progressions, and brass that is the best recorded big band I've heard. A rock-and-roll upright (acoustic) bass. Johnny Guerin's drumming is insane. And the whole thing was probably done in a few hours, all sight read.
