I add these:

Limehouse Blues
Love Songs of the Nile
Hong Kong Blues (H. Carmichael)
The Vamp
On  A Little Street in Singapore
When Bhudda Smiles
Allah's Holiday (Red Nichols did this as "Bass Man's Holiday," with 
"Blizzard Head" a.k.a. Joe Rushton featured on Bass Sax on a wonderful 
Bobby Hammock chart.)
