I saw Basie live once, near the end. He was great, and the band was great. They did an updated version of this tune that rocked the house, lead trumpet Lin Biviano came down and played the shout chorus a la Cat Anderson. Butch Miles on drums, and, of course, Freddie Green, who played guitar for 38 years in Basie's band and never took a solo. (Interesting he doesn't appear in the video.)

My favorite big band of them all, and I got to see them in person when I was a kid at the Valley Forge Music Fair.
