Possibly, it is the sum effect of all the players making slight adjustments to their usual approaches: Charlie Watts gets to play as jazzy as he has ever been on a Stones track which must have been a pleasure as an aficionado of the genre ; Keith Richards plays a hypnotic, swirling guitar; Taylor, in addition to adding a rare synthesizer, breaks out of his usual blues-based runs for a bit of Latin tinge that he believes he may have picked up on a sojourn to Brazil; Nicky Hopkins seems swept up in the vamp as well, improvising upper-register runs on the piano; Bill Wyman slips in suitably Latin bass accents; and Jagger imparts his Yoda-like observations in an oddly affected accent, somewhere between an American soul man and Caribbean folksinger.
The jazzy, soft rock result is probably what makes "Time Waits for No One" seem so different; rarely have the Stones been so smooth on a recording. This is not to say that the track lacks soul; it is a mesmerizing and beautiful track.
