This great song was written in the mid-1920s and quickly became a standard for pop and jazz performers. I learned it playing with swing/trad jazz bands in the 1970’s and arranged it based on on the original 1926 recording by Clarence Williams' Blue Five. Most contemporary versions are instrumental and omit the verse, which in this case is a real pity as it’s superior both musically and in terms of lyrics. I recorded this version on my third LP, The King of Bongo Bong, and anyone wanting to hear my version can find that record as a download or as a CD, elsewhere on this site. The individual track is also available as an MP3.
