    I recently stumbled upon the following strange and excellent video:

    Al Hirt - Trumpet Duel [Johnny Cash Show] - YouTube

    Between 3:09 and 3:35, Al Hirt plays an excerpt that sounds to me like he's quoting Harry James (in fact, somebody in the audience says as much after he finishes), but I don't recognize the melody or chord changes.

    Can somebody kindly name that tune? :-)

    Thanks!

    C'mon man, give me some credit. :-) That's not You Made Me Love You.

    No. I've performed You Made Me Love You many, many times. This is one of the canonical versions, which you may enjoy listening to:

    Harry James - You Made Me Love You - YouTube

    That isn't close to the melody or chord progression from my original post. The rhythm in the pickup to the first bar is similar, which may be what is throwing you off.

    Please stop posting in this thread, and let somebody who actually recognizes the tune write a response.

    Ohhhh, you win. I heard a recording where James quoted it on You Made me Love You.
