Subject: RE: Lyr Req: ring dem bells
Jim Cullum has a traditional jazz band in San Antonio, Texas. For years, he and his band, along with a long string of guests and great old recordings have had a public radio broadcast called "Live, From The Landing" (the name of his nightclub on the San Antonio River). I recall hearing a version of "Ring Dem Bells" as done by Fats Waller, I believe, on his show. It looks like this tune, or variants, have wound up in several guises, including "hot jazz."
