Maybe it's Exactly Like You that you're hearing ? All the same, I don't believe it's intended as a quote - it's just a phrase that suggests itself organically, or naturally at this point.

And thanks to the OP for this excellent transcription.

It's cool pattern based on major triad. It sounds very similar to Willis "Gatortail" Jackson from his solo in Later for The Gator 01:10

I'm pretty sure both Branford and Willis are quoting the same tune - some old Dixieland* standard, maybe??

<edit> *it reminds me more of a Calypso, if I'm honest....

it isn't "Bebop", it isn't "Exactly like you", and it isn't a calypso.
my old pal accordionist Harry Hussey knew right away-
"Many long years ago, A fellow named Robin Hood;
He used to rob the rich. Most every chance he could. "

Louis Prima might be the nicest version , others by Les Brown, Tony Pastor bands.
