Arranger Dick Ravenal made an ingenious arrangement of the worldfamous hit by singer and composer Louis Prima. This swing piece was originally composed for the Universal movie picture 'The Benny Goodman Story'. Right away from the start of this arrangement, Dick Ravenal uses the typical Benny Goodman riffs. Then there is a swinging basic rythm with the sax group which is repeated between the several themes. The small Chinese interlude is rather funny; the arranger was inspired by the pun with 'sing sing' which means prison in the Chinese language. Then again comes the swing leading to the conclusion with the Benny Goodman theme.
