Here’s “Relaxin’” by Willie “The Lion” Smith. It’s the first piece from the three great Harlem Stride composers (James P. Johnson, Thomas “Fats” Waller, and “The Lion”) that I learned once I started branching out from ragtime. 

No @volsteads tonight, but I’ll be there Wednesday at around 8:30 until midnight!

“Aba Daba Honeymoon” was written by Arthur Fields and Walter Donovan in 1914, and was later featured in the 1950 movie Two Weeks with Love, performed by Debbie Reynolds and Carleton Carpenter. The version I play here at @volsteads is basically straight from the movie!
