Horace's music swung hard; his music breathed; it always had life. The time signature didn't matter. If his music changed time signature or meter, it didn't matter. If it sped up, slowed down, or stopped and started, it didn't matter. If it was slow, medium or fast, it didn't matter. It always swung. This was one of many ways in which Horace followed the example of Duke Ellington. In a harmonic sense, except for the free/avant-garde playing/arranging, I don't believe you will find anything in Horace's music that you would not find in the music of Duke Ellington.
