The drum groove is based on the Weather-Report classic, Birdland. Drummers should listen to and play along with the classic recording to internalise the groove for the A section. The B section half-time groove the drums and bass need to ensure the quaver pushes really lock in. The rhythm section is scored very simply so as to allow the piano and guitarists the option to impart their own personality in their accompanying figures. The voicings in the piano part are a guide – young performers should research and experiment with different 4th voicings. They should listen to the great modal recordings from the Kind of Blue era.
