Something that's always been fascinating to me (besides how much Mark can sound like Warne, even in timbre) about this recording is how SLOW it is, especially compared to where Lennie's quintet would take it. I don't think it's a concession to the players--this might not be a tune Josh would usually play but he has a history of being ludicrously prepared for gigs or record dates. I feel like it's a conscious decision on Mark's part to maybe do something with the tune.

The drummer's also being super loose and free with how he swings (especially on the head), which I dig. He does it on 26-2 as well, which kinda makes you consider these dense contrafacts in a new light--they're all just melodies.
