I've loved Jackie's playing since I first heard it 50 years ago and he's been my favorite alto saxophonist since then. This is really beautiful, so thank you a million times over for uploading it to YouTube and posting this thread to tell us about it.

If you don't like my writing style, then please just don't read my posts and move along silently. Nobody is holding a gun to your head.
I like how rhythmically free he is playing that fast tempo. Very nice vibe.
I just stole that little diminished in the beginning @0.20. F#-C -D-A-B-F#-G#
