Thread Name: Favourite Swing tune?
Subject: RE: Favourite Swing tune?
I've seen some vague references that seem to say someone else may have written B&TF, but I'm pretty sure you're right about the Duke making in known; and I wouldn't be surprised if he wrote it. I did see it in a fake book on the shelf a couple of years ago, but it was one of those $80 books, so I passed - assuming I'd run into it again somewhere. No such.

There seems to have been a highschool band arrangement of it that was pretty popular ca. late 50s. Having heard it played badly so many times probably is why I don't seem to be able to nail it by ear.
