I never knew!

I knew the Louis Armstrong recording with his own band, but I never knew that Louis also did it with Jimmy Dorsey's band! Both recordings are from 1936. What a treat! - Louis and his orchestra - Louis with Jimmy Dorsey & his orchestra

This version of the song was recorded on 8/7/36. However it was not released until early 1940. It so happened that Louis also recorded it with his own orchestra on 4/29/36. This one was released in 1936. Louis plays the solo's almost exactly the same, but the bands are very different.
