ASD Music Review:

Good dance beat with a walking bass making for a swing dance feel. Melody is easy to follow with clear leads from organ, saxophone, electric guitar, and organ. The same instruments provide lots of fills plus there are back-up singers on the chorus. This is a singing call that will excite the dancers without driving them. Good song choice for a cool down tip. Scott offers his usual great vocal along with good word meter. Be aware the melody line changes on the closer; listen to the vocal for how to execute.
