Post 166: OSTRICH WALK
'Ostrich Walk' was first devised and recorded in 1917 by The Original Dixieland Jazz Band, so it was credited to their players Edwin B. Edwards, Nick LaRocca, Henry Ragas, Tony Sbarbaro and Larry Shields.I wanted to learn it, so I started by making myself a lead sheet. This is what I came up with.
