"Rock and Rye" by Earl Hines, from 1934-1937

"B.O. Plenty's Return" by Morris Lane, from For Jumpers Only!

"Pink Cadillac" by Paul Bascomb, from For Jumpers Only!

Yeah, that's pretty much what I was thinking of, anyway. I edited it so it's clearer.

"Shorty George." It's off a mix CD, so I have yet to figure out what version, but I think it's Basie's Complete Decca set. Was "Well, Git It!" for a long time after seeing the Mad Dog video, but it got overplayed here.

"Doin the Uptown Lowdown" off of the Lindy Binge CD.

Also "Traffic Jam" by Artie Shaw.

It's easy to sit there and say you'd like to have more money. And I guess that's what I like about it. It's easy. Just sitting there, rocking back and forth, wanting that money.

Well, yeah, but I can't make much out of dancing to the fast version.........yet.

You know I request it when you're around. I know you'll play the 285. :D
