Speaking of Jordan and Prima, I have the following in my fake books:

"30s-40s Fake Book"
[From the records]
Ain't nobody here but us chickens (Jordan)
Choo choo ch'boogie (Jordan)
Knock me a kiss (Jordan)

"Gig Book"
Jump jive and wail (Prima) [has the Prima intro and ending]
These are Italian favorites:
Buona sera (Prima)
Oh Marie (Prima) [nearly the same chords as Hindustan]


> Once nice thing about the recent "New Swing" trend, besides
> enabling/creating oodles of dancers who can dance to 4/4 dixieland, was
> reviving some of the Louis Jordan hits, including "...Chickens..." and
> "Choo choo ch'booger". Also enough Louis Prima that dixieland bands can
> play some worhorses with a shuffle beat, like Prima did...
