One of the jazziest numbers ever played by the "Coon-Sanders" band this memorable fox trot was an overnight success and became an instant standard performed by other hot dance orchestras.
In 1919 Joe Sanders gave up on a professional baseball career to pursue music full time with the formation of the "Nighthawk Orchestra" together with percussionist and co-founder Carleton Coon.
Being an extremely talented composer and lyricist the jazz world would be fortunate for Joe's history altering decision for his written output alone.
