Wynton says "I thought of the clarinet, soprano, and alto as little people who irritate humorously with little repetition. The baritone and the trombone are delivering the more serious message at the bottom. So you have the contrast between the gravity of the lower register shout and the levity and clarity of the upper register. It is also a minor blues with two feelings of meter, one straight 3/4, the other 6/4. In the upper reed parts I'm also turning the beats around the way they used to in the old stride school." Instrumentation: Reed 1: Clarinet; Reed 2: Clarinet/Soprano Sax; Reed 3: Alto Sax; Reed 4: Baritone Sax; Trumpet; Trombone; Piano; Bass and Drums.
