Been digging a ton of Dick Oatts lately. Nothing like swingin med tempo 4/4. Band is workin hard especially bass man.

Oatts is all over those barlines. Transcribe worthy. Here he uses the same rhythic shape pressing it further and further, often times the phrases are the same duration which yields it's own tension.

:56 - 1:10 can you tip harder than that??

1:44 = tension 1:52 release. Very interesting double time.

The arrrangement sounds very much like what The Phil Woods group with Tom Harrell was into in the late 80's. Very nice.
Dick is a phenomenal player. Thanks for the post.
