As the title suggests, Mobley wrote this song specifically for Philly Joe. Starting first with an eight-bar drum intro, then Philly Joe's interaction with the melody, which consists of a call and response of two-bar phrases with horns, then drums. Only a drummer like Philly Joe can fill every two bars and make it feel so good. Also included is a full solo chorus over the form, which is incredibly dynamic and technically astonishing.
