      Hello Mates,

      "Too Busy" is one of my favorite tunes. Charlie Straight's versions
      (two, one with a vocal and one without) are fantastic. There are also
      excellent versions by the Coon-Sanders Nighthawks and by the Clicquot
      Club Eskimos (with an interpolation of "Berceuse de Jocelyn.") The
      Lillie Delk Christian version with Louis and his Hot Four has a great
      scatting by Louis behind the vocal by Lillie. Would it be correct to
      describe what Louis does as a "vocal obbligato"? Obbligatos are mostly
      played on trumpet or reeds behind a vocal.
