Well Git It - Tommy Dorsey

Well Git It is one of my favorite songs, here is a video clip with Tommy Dorsey performing Well Git It. The video clip starts kind of mellow but don't you worry, they soon start playing it the way you know it: up-tempo, kick-ass and jam circle encouraging .

You'll see a young Buddy Rich at the drums, a year ago I posted a video clip of Buddy Rich performing Well Git It on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

What do you think of Well Git It with Tommy Dorsey? Please comment.
