Editor's note: if you know who the Harlem Globetrotters are then you'll recognize Sweet Georgia Brown although the version used for their promotions is a variation of this version. If you don't know Brother Bones then read what Wikipedia has to say about him:
"Brother Bones (October 4, 1902 – June 14, 1974) was an American whistling and bone playing musician from Montgomery, Alabama. Born Freeman Davis, his late 1940s recording of the 1925 standard 'Sweet Georgia Brown,' became internationally famous after being adopted as the theme song of the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team in 1952. Despite the success of this record, Brother Bones himself remained relatively unknown."
Pretty sad for such great music. Ah- well.
