Composed when Johnny Green was in London in 1930, the song was firstly recorded by Jack Hylton & His Orchestra in Britain. It was introduced by vocalist Jack Fulton, reaching the charts and helding the number one for six weeks. In spite of its quick popularity, the song was banned from radio for almost a year because of its very suggestive lyrics. The following two decades testified its growing popularity with an amazing number of renditions that made the charts. The first jazz musician to record the tune was Louis Armstrong in 1930, his version was very close to the original, it was Henry “Red” Allen another New Orleans’ trumpeter who firstly explored its improvisational possibilities.
