Artie Shaw’s Class in Swing (1939)


The short film includes:

Nightmare (Artie Shaw)  played behind the titles

Table d’Hôte (Artie Shaw) – instrumental with voice over narration

I Have Eyes (m. Ralph Rainger, w. Leo Robin) vocal: Helen Forrest

Shoot The Likker To Me, John Boy (Artie Shaw) – instrumental

All songs performed by Artie Shaw and his Orchestra. Table d’Hôte is not included in the IMDb soundtrack song list. The drummer is 22 year old Buddy Rich. IMDb also lists another song, Free Wheeling, which appears in none of the versions of this short film that I’ve seen.
