    Such a beautiful tune and performance...marred by a knuckle-headed edit/splice which resulted in a bar of 2/4 at 1:41. (I refuse to believe that B.E. or J.H. "dropped a beat...".)
    Here is a sketch of the (approximate) melody and solo changes.
    WTAF? Who was responsible for this "edit"? I guess I should just "let it go"?

    RVG tracked the session, but the responsibility for the edit (if there is one) is ultimately on Creed Taylor.

    I don't hear any obvious evidence of a splice...I suppose it could be a punch in.
    The tempo is slow enough that it doesn't bother me. I may not have even noticed it if you hadn't pointed it out.

    I'm not sure there was the ability to "punch in" in 1966.
    I don't hear the splice, either. But, I do miss the quarter note...
