No. 1 for January 1, 2014

The Man I Love performed by Coleman Hawkins' Swing Four, from Coleman Hawkins: 1943-1944

One of Thelonious' first recordings (from 1943) is a swingin' double-time-feel chorus-and-a-half (which also hints at Criss-Cross) leading into a fine solo from a heavy breathing bass player before the leader takes it out. They don't do it like this anymore and you shouldn't even try.
