1. Sonny Blues

From the recording Wise Guy

Inspired by saxophone colossus Sonny Rollins, this bouncy blues features a lengthy bass solo. For this tune, I told Tony to play only within a certain range of the piano, and only with one hand. He created what I think is one of the most memorable solos on the entire record. When Marty and Matt bring in the background shouts, the band is cooking full steam ahead.
