Never heard this tune either! Excellent! and to think that Chet composed it along with Beaudleaux Bryant. Still sounds exciting even though it was done in 1952 (when I was 4 years old.) All those ideas in one song. I wonder if it got much air time? Thanks for posing it.

Sincerely,

Just proves what I always suspected. Chet was a genius probably before the word was even defined in the dictionary.
