"An unusually slow instrumental from the Basie Book", warned Willis Connover in his introduction to the 1960 performance of the tune.
With Ray Charles - piano; Phil Guilbeau - trumpet, John Hunt - flugelhorn; Hank Crawford - alto saxophone; David Fathead Newman - tenor saxophone; Leroy Cooper - baritone saxophone; Edgar Willis - bass; Milton Turner - drums.

The same line-up (with only Milt Turner replaced by Brono Carr) performed the tune as brilliantly at all four concerts in Antibes, in July 1961. It's still a riddle to me how the camera men succeeded in missing it all four times.
