      'Shoe Shine Boy' was written for Louis by Saul Chaplin & Sammy Cahn in 1935
      for 'Hot Chocolates'.

      Cahn himself can be heard, in interview on 'The Wonderful World Of Louis
      Armstrong' blogsite, claiming that the opening phrase was based on a Louis
      lick.

      Suspiciously, the same lick opens 'Stompin' Fool' (written by Harry Ford,
      pianist Original Indiana Five) recorded 10 May 1927 by the Arkansas
      Travelers and 23 May 1927 by the Dixie Daisies.

      Does anybody know where the original Louis lick appears ?
