I've loved the Louis Jordan version for years - nice latin feel melded to the blues. The Nilsson version is new to me and good in a different way.

Louis Jordan's two chorus solo is transcribed in the book "Jazz Styles & Analysis: Alto Sax" which has been out of print for years but which I have. Drop me a PM if you are interested in seeing the solo.

I haven't got the melody transcribed but you can get the Van Morrison version (a bit different) here: http://www.sheetmusicdirect.com/se/ID_No/17180/Product.aspx

PS Louis Jordan has got a great sax tone and played most of the saxes, although he is best known for his alto.
