Chattanooga Choo Choo – TTBB


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.
