While recording his 1980 album Good Cookin’, Junior Cook asked trombonist Slide Hampton to write a tune based on John Coltrane’s “Lazy Bird”, itself a rewrite of Tadd Dameron’s “Lady Bird”.  The chords for the head and shout chorus differ slightly from the original, but the band solos on Trane’s Lazy Bird changes.
