Chattanooga Choo Choo – SSA(A)


By Harry Warren and Mack Gordon, recorded by Glenn Miller and his orchestra. It was an extended production number in the 20th Century Fox film Sun Valley Serenade and opens with a dialogue between a passenger and a shoe shine boy: “Pardon me, boy, is that the Chattanooga Choo-Choo?” “Track 29!” “Boy, you can give me a shine.” It starts with a lively and infectious call and response style texture between the parts before all join in a rhythmic pace.
