The unison melody line of this Hank Mobley composition, played on the recording by the trombone and tenor sax, can't help but swing. Each phrase finishes with the entire band, and this eventually leads into a solo section with backgrounds for a trumpet solo.
SOLOS: These changes go from major to the relative minor and back to the major via some sequential II-Vs. These are good changes for a less experienced jazz soloist because they stay within well-defined key areas, with only one prominently placed chromatic II-V breaking out of this framework. II-V changes.

HANK MOBLEY (1930-1986). After leaving Art Blakey's original Jazz Messengers, Hank played with Horace Silver and Dizzy Reece before recording several albums as a member of Miles Davis' quintet (along with Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones). Hank made several classic albums in the '50s and '60s for Blue Note including "Soul Station," "Straight No Filter," "Workout" and "A Caddy For Daddy" with sidemen including Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, Paul Chambers, Billy Higgins and Wynton Kelly. Like Kenny Dorham, he is not as well-known as his talents merit and his career was shortened by health problems. His driving compositions, such as "This I Dig of You," are characterized by rhythmic and harmonic twists and have been recorded by John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard, Donald Byrd, Horace Silver, Lee Morgan and others.
