Product Details


Not to be confused with the same titled piece from the Nutcracker Suite, this tenor sax feature from Duke's later years has an open almost "world music" groove that transitions to straight ahead swing. Contrasting traditional harmonic sections with vamp like textures, odd phrase lengths and his usual colorful orchestration, makes this one of Duke's great compositions.
