Subject: RE: Jazz Lyric '1 2 3 O'Lairy' - Count Basie 1940
I've followed this thread with interest. I remember this song from youthful playgrounds late'40s/early'50s, but Jimmy Rushing?? I can't hear it in his marvellous voice in my mind's ear, somehow! I've checked my Basie and Rushing recordings and haven't come across it. I'd be fascinated by the eventual answer!
