An early hit by Rube Bloom, later writer of standards like "Fools Rush In (Where Angels Fear to Tread)."

Paul Lindemeyer says:

Rex Stewart told the story that Hawkins brought the bass sax to just one record date, and that everybody agreed he could not play it. In reality he used it on a handful of sides, and did fine. It wasn't Hawk's lack of ability that was embarrassing, it was the instrument itself.

I never thought I would actually hear Coleman Hawkins on a bass saxophone! Terrific!

And Fletcher Henderson really whacks that piano!
