Does anyone play Andy Anderson's "Chant of the Tuxedos" ?

The only versions I've heard (have yet to hear AA's 1939 original) are by
the Brit bands of Cuff Billett, Hugh Rainey and more recently, The Delta
Band (the late Sonny Morris's band).

Cuff's steaming 12 minute take on it at a (1994 ?) festival was a classic,
but then most of what the Billett Boys play comes into that catagory.
Yes, I am a fan !!
