Alternative title: "Ain't Misbehavin' (I'm Savin' My Love for You)"
Introduced at Connie’s Inn, a Harlem speakeasy that featured song and dance revues, during the opening of the all-black musical revue Hot Chocolates. The Connie’s Inn performance of “Ain’t Misbehavin’” was sung as an opening number by Margaret Simms and Paul Bass and then, later in the show, by Russell Wooding’s Hallelujah Singers. At the Hudson Theatre on Broadway, the opening remained the same, but at intermission Louis Armstrong, in his Broadway debut, took to the stage to play “Ain’t Misbehavin’” as a trumpet solo.
