    Yes definitely "young man with a horn". The opening phrase makes that obvious and the harmony's the same.

    Just for your information.......He is quoting "The Man with A Horn"..Ray Anthony's theme song.

    "The Young Man With A Horn" is a real jump tune, also play by Harry James, with June Allyson.

    Give a listen, it's a great tune. We play this chart in our swing band.

    Absolutely true. I even gave a link to Harry James' band playing Man with a Horn right after writing "Young" Man with a Horn.. Don't know where the "Young" came from. My bad.

    For anyone interested in an interesting match, here's Al Hirt playing the tune with a more gussied up setting:
