JERSEY BOUNCE, THE Tiny Bradshaw (m) Edward Johnson (m) Robert Plater (m) Robert B Wright (l) 1942 as rec by Ella Mae Morse 1957 also rec by- The Glenn Miller Orch '42 Tommy Dorsey & his Orch '42 Benny Goodman & his Orch '42 The King sisters w The Rhythm Reys '42 Hank Penny '50 Ella Fitzgerald '61 Eduardo Almani & his Orch Les Brown & his Band Jimmy Dorsey & his Orch The Squadronaires They vall it The Jersey Bounce, A rhythm that really counts, The temperature always mounts, Whenever they play the funny rhythm they play. It started on Journal Square, And somebody heard it there, They put it right on the air, And now you'll 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! The temperature always mounts, Whenever they play the funny rhythm they play. And they put it right on the air, And now you'll hear it everywhere! 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! (Contributed by Peter Akers - March 2009)
