Jerry Lewis-The Errand Boy-STEREO-Count Basie-Boss Pantomime

Song is Blues in Hoss Flat by the Count Basie Orchestra. This is the same version as the movie, except in STEREO-some remixing for instrument clarity and separation. It is from the 1958 "Chairman of The Board" album, and "The Errand Boy" is from 1961.
