While I am home I will be posting numerous Blindfold Test videos. I will give a hint or two here. It is also in the youtube.com description.

This tune was written in 1956 by a famous jazz Tenor player.

First one to guess get a virtual roll of toilet paper.

Am I missing something?

I have a feeling no one looks at this section? When I log on I go to main page and check out my favorite sections.
I never click on new posts.

This is why Ive posted most of my videos in Cymbal Talk.

Seems to get more traffic

Hints
1. The Title is only two words

2. I'm taking the tempo quite a bit faster than the recording.

So was there something in your playing I missed that made it fit this song and only this song? Trouble is you are just playing a form and that form fits any number of tunes.

The hints about the tenor player who played with Blakey and the Jazz Messengers helped, and Tom started with brushes and for some reason that made me think of Benny Golson and so I was thinking Benny Golson and then Tom got to the bridge and the way he played the bridge and got into the last A made me hear the melody to Whisper Not.
