The Brother Bones version is in 2/2, not 2/4. Bob Blumenthal always makes that mistake when he comments on Miles Davis playing things like “All Of You”. The Miles performances are in 4/4, but Paul Chambers plays in 2/2 against it during the melody statements. This builds up tension before the piece breaks loose into 4 to the bar. I would like to know who the tenor saxophone player is in the Bones version. There is no influence of Coleman Hawkins or Lester Young. He sounds a bit like Fats Waller’s tenor saxophone player, Gene Sedric. There is perhaps a bit of an influence of Bud Freeman.
