It was a show piece for Henry Busse. Listen to Whiteman's vesion arrranged by Ferde Grofe.

I am sure most of you know that Hot Lips was composed by Henry Busse. But there were two other composers.

Henry Lange (1895-1985) was a pianist for Whiteman, on and off, between Jan 1921 and April 1924. He was the pianist in the famous recording of Dec 16, 1924  Doo Wacka Doo with a highly Bixian solo by Leroy Morris. There is a very informative webpage about Henry Lange:

Henry Lange and his orchestra recorded Hot Lips on Sep 15, 1927 for Gennett in Richmond IN. A pretty hot interpretation with Leroy Morris doing the Bixian solo (not as Bixian as his solo in Doo Wacka Doo).
