Here’s a very swingy song from the King Of Swing himself.  As the original poster says Plenty of bounce here with a swing powerful enough to drift a bulldozer”.  I like that cat!
This version was recorded in 1940, with an amazing personnel.  Benny Goodman on Clarinet, Cootie Williams on trumpet, Georgie Auld on tenor sax, Charlie Christian on guitar, Count Basie on piano, Artie Bernstein on bass and Harry Jaeger on drums.
Enjoy!

This is from 1941. Same personnel. Only one missing is Count Basie
