Fifties bebop jazz piece written by the legendary trumpeter, Dizzy Gillespie. First being heard in the early nineteen forties, it was originally titled 'Interlude'. One of the best known bebop tunes, it was distinctive for it's unusual bass vamp which was a departure from the usual walking bass line. The composition also weaves it's way back and forth from a latin feel to swing.
