What shall I say, this is a song every Swing dancer should know.
I think it's not wrong to say that the song is overused for performances and probably also overplayed on the dance floor. However, it's a great tune!
When this song was recorded, Chick Webb has already died – a few months before, at the age of only 34 – and Ella Fitzgerald led the orchestra.
Title: Lindyhopper's Delight
Artist: Chick Webb Orchestra
Recorded: October 12, 1939
