According to J. Kim

Karriem Riggins recently came off of his “Virtuoso Experience” Tour featuring the help of Pete Rock and DJ Dummy as guest DJs. Below is a clip of Karriem Riggins and band in their version of the song “Tergiversation.”

“Tergiversation” is a song by Gene Perla. Perla was a bass player who performed with legendary drummer Elvin Jones for many years. “Tergiversation” is a term that describes an evasion of straightforward action of clear-cut statement. Perla dedicated the song to jazz legend Miles Davis, a tergiversationist if there ever was one, who often turned his back towards the audience as he played.
