  Title:  ANYTIME GIRL

Description:  Moderately up-tempo 5/4 swing (180-190 bpm) with rock section. John says"The key is getting the rhythm section to feel 5/4 swing so it's not just 3+2. Billy Kilson, drummer for Dave Holland, is an excellent example of contemporary jazz drumming in odd meters". Vibes are optional.
