"Thanks to Mark Vinci for this transcription from the Benny Carter record, "Further Definitions" with Joe Jones, drums;Dick Katz, piano; John Collins, guitar, Jimmy Garrison, bass; Benny Carter, arranger & alto; Coleman Hawkins and Charlie Rouse, tenors and your's truly. Recorded for Bob Thiele's Impulse label in November, 1961 when I was 9 years old. Notice how Mr. Hawkins pokes a little fun at my whole tone scale thing on his entrance! He sounds like a freight train running over a mini-cooper! Keeps one humble!"
