In this song there are quite a few breaks. But because it's not too fast, it's a great song to play around as dancers.
Written by James A. Noble.
Personnel: Woody Herman, Tommy Linehan, Walter Yoder, Frank Carlson.
Woody Herman and James A. Noble
I wrote a short biography about Woody Herman here.
There is a lot of information about Herman on the internet:
Wikipedia, allmusic, npr etc.
But unfortunately, I couldn't find anything about the composer James A. Noble. If you have some informations then please let me know.
By the way, there is still an active Woody Herman Orchestra on the road!
