Hi to all,

I'm pretty excited, I think I've found something!

Listen to this Count Basie Song, "It's sand, man" (nothing to do with Metallica hey :lol: ...) at 0'49.

The riff is exactly the same phrase than in the A part of Django's "Babik"! years before Django recorded it and mixed it with GIllespie's "salt Peanuts" to use as B part of his "Babik"

For some reasons I can't dispaly the Youtube video inside this message (?)
