Big Jay McNeely - The Squat

Back in the early months of 2010, I found a Big Jay McNeely record on Swingin', "Psycho Serenade", which is a wild r&b vocal number. Then, late in the year, I found this great, swingin' (as the label name would imply) instro by McNeely's band. This one features what must have been a young Leon Haywood on organ. As much as I love "Psycho Serenade", I may like this one even better. I especially like the part near the end when everything stops for a moment, before kicking into gear again. It's almost as if they figured they needed another 20 seconds or so out of the tune and decided to keep going.
