That's the third song by Andy Kirk and interestingly, all three songs are in a similar tempo range – very comfortable for Lindy Hop social dancing.
In 1928, Andy Kirk took over Terrence Holder’s Dark Clouds of Joy and moved to Kansas City.
He first named the orchestra Andy Kirk and his Dark Clouds Of Joy and then Andy Kirk and his Twelve Clouds Of Joy.
A Mellow Bit Of Rhythm
The title is self-explaining. As I mentioned before, it is indeed a great song for social dancing.
