Mary Lou Williams co-wrote this novelty song with her arranging and composition teacher Milton Orent. She arranged this for Dizzy Gillespie's band in 1949 and it was recorded with vocalist Joe Carroll. It was written to also feature Dizzy. His solo part is written in trumpet 5. We have also written in the melody into the trumpet 5 part so that it may be played as a trumpet feature throughout without a vocalist.
