DBMITW: Trio Jeepy

I feel like I've been pretty unimaginative with my filler lately, but what am I going to do that's better than this?

That's from Branford Marsalis's late 80's record Trio Jeepy, with Milt Hinton and Jeff Watts. Listen for Watts's crazy displacement chorus somewhere in the middle-- you need a really powerful bass player to pull that kind of thing off without causing a trainwreck. Hearing this track-- along with Sonny Rollins' Blue Seven and the album Coltrane Plays The Blues-- really got me thinking about blues as more than just a twelve bar form.
