What in blazes do I want to listen to? I want to hear Artie Shaw "Honeysuckle Jump" ("The Mom and Pop Store"). I have tried every trick in the book, search engines,, etc, etc, etc, and I cannot find any recording of this song! It is burning my brain! Maybe it wasn't really Artie Shaw or maybe it really wasn't "Honeysuckle Jump". Is there anyone out their in SeinLand that can help me find this exuberant tune for my listening pleasure? And by the way, I found out about the Seinfeld DVDs, printed the page and made a very non-subtle way of letting my husband know that THAT was what I wanted most for my birthday (coming up, May 22!) Keep your fingers crossed for me!! Thanks to All and
"Giddy Up!" *tink*

sorry, tinker bell, but those dvds aren't going to be ready for your birthday. they're not coming out until winter.

unless your husband is planning on pulling a george, and giving you a picture of them for your birthday.

But Gack, I just now made my payment on PayPal for the DVDs. They are probably bootlegs, but it's SEINFELD and when the official DVDs come out, I will probably get them too, especially if they have special features. But you didn't answer my question about the Honeysuckle Jump...

I answered this in another thread. According to my mother, a huge Artie Shaw fan, Shaw never recorded a song named Honeysuckle Jump. In fact, she believes there is no such song as Honeysuckle Jump and further opines that they created a song name from the union of Honeysuckle Rose and 1 O'Clock Jump, both originating with Count Basie.

So Tinker, did you ever decipher what song that was? I just saw the episode last night and tried to do the very same thing. It must be a real song, not spcl composed for show, right? Maybe I'll have to borrow my buddy's full dvd set, and play that segment for a big band music jock...or is there an easier way?

Well, we don't really know where Tinker is right now, but if we locate her, you will be the first to know. Rolling Eyes

She must have purchased the DVDs and found out in the Notes About Nothing therein that "Honeysuckle Jump", as well as "Next Stop Pottersville", were made up tunes by the music coordinator of the show Jonathan Wolfe.

I hope she's rotting in an alley somewhere. Or maybe she's dead.

I could swear they played it on Cal. State Long Beach's Jazz station today, no kidding!

I was aware it they made those tunes up for the show.

I was in some store recently that was playing classical music, and the song that began just as I was leaving was the very same one that Elaine and The Maestro were singing together in his car in "The Maestro". True story! True story!

The song played in the store was by Pavarotti (not the other two guys) so the song from "The Maestro" was obviously by someone else. I think the accordian was my first clue.

Anyway, just another real world Seinfeld moment. Like at the bank the other day when I depositied a check and I said to the teller I wanted to deposit the check as cash to make sure my account doesn't go into the red... or the black... whichever the bad one is. She laughed at everything I said. She thinks I'm hilarious. You know, in a way it was almost too good. I started so good, I can't go any place but down now, ya know? I got no place to go.

The songs mentioned on SEINFELD, such as "Honeysuckle Jump by Artie Shaw," and "Next Stop Pottersville," are FICTIONAL and the titles and music were MADE UP for the episode.

Well, if it takes you three years to figure that out, you might as well post it three times.

Technically, Norfolk has more gross tonnage.
