I've loved the album "The Blues and the Abstract Truth" for years and this is the most famous track and features a fantastic well thought out solo by Oliver Nelson. I don't think it was entirely composed as such but I suspect he had thought out an idea for each chorus and worked within that constraint. There's a lot to take away from this, great opening use of an idea based on fourths, triplet pattern triad pairs motif and a crunchy descending triads idea. There's also a hip riff at bar 37 which I recognise from his "Patterns for Improvising" book (Aebersold Publishing), well worth exploring if you like these symmetrical sounding licks.
