Beautiful tune for Dixieland, Warren, whether as a Tango or a swinger. Used to
play it all the time with Derf Nolde and the various Keystone Five Groups at
the Temperence House in Newtown PA a few years ago before they went bust.

BTW, listmates, Have you read Warren Sr's book about Pee Wee Erwin? If not, buy
it and do so. Also, Warren has a new book coming out soon and is too modest to
mention it on his own. So, I am asking him via this post to tell us about it.

How about it Vache Sr?
