Great driving around town music....lov e it!!!
Brass overload. Couldn't be catchier :P
True jazz, classic
Never heard this tune before. Great tune and love the fact that the Steely Dan riff in Rikki was seemingly borrowed from this tune.
Gets me dancing around the room....be-b o p p i n g . . . .

At first I thought this was Rikki Don't Lose That Number.

Heard this song on my way to rescuing my brother out of a bad situation.

The title is so fitting, because our father had passed away 2 years earlier and i felt he was there in spirit to help . Now whenever I hear this song , I call my brother .
This song was my gateway drug to the great world of jazz. Thanks to Fagen & Backer for co-opting the opening line into 'Rikki Don't Lose That Number' & spreading the seeds to a pop audience.
Horace Silver was a magician.
i love it
