    I think the drummer is the key.
    He a sort of tune tempo from a part to another .
    Men ! He got a sort of sweet groove . I like the way hit the snare, letting more space for the others .

    Mongo Santamaria's rythym made the Hancock tune a hit, not the funk style.

    Do these great musicians have day jobs?
    Are they weekend musicians?
    Do they have families?

    They are so passionate with music!
    Way to go!
    Keep sharing your talent!

    COOL! Instead of the traditional arrangement with a choir – solo trump - solo sax – some chase – etc. jump directly into a guitar solo and make some great (unison) riffs with tenor and alto horn
