Chord changes for Spencer Williams' Basin Street Blues. Composed in 1928. Despite the title, this tune has the most tenous connection with the blues. The lyrical tie-in is that Basin Street is where the singer can lose his Basin Street Blues.
Louis Armstrong played this throughout his career and recorded many performances of it.
