Features: Bruce Hornsby (piano, vocals); Jimmy Haslip (bass); John Molo (drums); Branford Marsalis (saxophone); Phil Collins (backing vocals).

This song has taken a while to grow on me, but now I could listen to it all night. No real message to the song, it’s just a song about a guy who gets involved in some shady dealing. A great gangster-style scene which involves driving “out about 13 miles” to a bar to discuss a deal – half expect Robert de Niro to make an appearance in the song. I suppose the main attraction of the song is the sax/clarinet solo which goes on throughout. However, listen carefully and you’ll also spot some pretty nifty bass guitar playing, which I believe is the key to the song.
