Although this is a classic song, I don't recall hearing it until I heard Jim Kweskin play it at McCabes, in Santa Monica, a few years ago. He played a great rag time style acoustic guitar and the band was jumping. I immediately wanted to learn the song and record it with my gang. I found a live version on You tube and started playing along with Jim.

About a year later, I went into Pierre Grills studio in Hawaii and asked him to help out. We cut the track with me on acoustic guitar and Pierre playing drums. It sounded great and we were on our way. He then added the smoking piano -- I thought he was channeling Fats Waller. It had that great 30's feel. He put on the bass line next and I told him my plans for the rest of the song were trumpet, trombone and clarinet and vocals with me and the great singer Ginai.

Ginai and I had been singing together at events and she had done the song before (she's done every song before...) She came in and we had a lot of fun singing back and forth and scatting with each other. We were steppin out and stylin.

I then added Bill Svarda and his pals, Rusty Higgins on clarinet and Gary Holopoff on trumpet at my studio in Los Angeles. They just cut loose and had fun with it. We mixed it at Pierres place and it all came together. This is the "dining" part of the CD.
