Yeah, GrovePath, us old farts know this tune as the classic it is, my fav being Ella singing and Basie's band playin'. WBGO and Jonathan Schwartz on WNYC.org (weekends from 12-4)plays it, usually with John Pizzarelli's cover which is great for a recent twist. However, THIS VERSION I've never heard!

Anyone know much about this song the "Jersey Bounce" -- I heard it a few months back on WNYC - Jonathan Schwartz - The Sunday Show. I think it would be great if one of the local bands did a cover of it. Anyone know anything about the writers?
===============================

- Lyrics are as sung by Ella Fitzgerald -- who did NOT chart this song, but perhaps the best version.
- Most popular version was by Benny Goodman, (It hit # 1 in
1942, was an instrumental!
- Also charted that same year by both Jimmy Dorsey (came in at #9) and Shep Fields (came in at #15) Not sure why 1942 was such a big year for the Jersey Jump!

Words by Robert B. Wright -- Music by Bobby Plater, Tiny Bradshaw, and Edward Johnson

Lyrics:
===============================
Jersey Bounce

(scat intro)
They call it that Jersey bounce
A rhythm that really counts
The temperature always mounts
Wherever they play, the funny rhythm they play

It started on Journal Square
And somebody heard it there
He put it right on the air
And now you hear it everywhere

Uptown, gave it new licks
Downtown, added some tricks
No town, makes it sound, the same
As where it came from

So if you don't feel so hot
Go out to some Jersey spot
And whether you're hep or not
The Jersey bounce'll make you swing

(scat)
How I love that Jersey bounce
(scat)
Oh come on and play that Jersey bounce
(scat)

They call it that Jersey bounce
A rhythm that really counts
The temperature always mounts
Whenever they play that Jersey Bounce

It started on Journal Square
And somebody heard it there
He put it right on the air
That tune called the Jersey Bounce

Uptown, gave it new licks
Downtown, added some tricks
No town, make it sound the same
As where it came from

So if you don't feel so hot
Go out to some Jersey spot
And whether you're hep or not
The Jersey bounce'll make you swing

Ounce by ounce
The Jersey Bounce
Puts you right in the swing
That Jersey Bounce
It'll make you swing

Give me that Jersey Bounce.
