Description:

This chart was originally recorded by Ella Mae Morse with the Freddie Slack Orchestra in July 1942 (on Capitol 115). The title itself refers to Jimmy Rushing, Count Basie's vocalist from 1935-48. The only adaptation that we have made to the Slack original is to remove the 8 measure male vocal and re-score it into the female vocal line, thereby eliminating the need for two vocalists in the chart. We have scored the Trumpet and Piano solos "as played" and the vocal part is written "as sung" by Ella Mae. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is D.
