When they begin the beguine
It brings back the sound of music so tender,
It brings back a night of tropical splendor,
It brings back a memory ever green.

Comments

Cherokee is the most famous of the Charlie Barnet charts, but the follow up to it, Redskin Rumba, which was written during the ASCAP ban of 1940, to my ears sounds looser, more swinging. It's essentially Cherokee in a different format, but swings more.
