Speaking of Candlelights...

by David Tenner

Here's Red Nichols' version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gc-ddKDFtxg (Personnel: Nichols, cornet; King Jackson, trombone; Matty Matlock, clarinet; Joe Rushton, bass sax; Walter Sheets, piano; Rollie Culver, drums. Recorded in Hollywood for Audiophile Records, Feb. 8, 1953)

I was aware of several other versions, including Bunny Berigan's https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPw3XxVR6DU and Jess Stacy's https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EU3ADK4hCXg but only just became aware of Red's. The Wikipedia article http://tinyurl.com/lqetp4o doesn't mention it.
