"Riverboat Shuffle" is a popular song composed by Hoagy Carmichael, Irving Mills and Dick Voynow, and with lyrics added later by Carmichael and Mitchell Parish. First recorded by Bix Beiderbecke and The Wolverines in 1924, it was Carmichael's first composition and would become a Dixieland standard. The Wolverines released the song as a Gennet 78, 5454-A, Matrix #11854 524, in 1924. Bix Beiderbecke recorded a second version of the song in 1927 with Frankie Trumbauer and His Orchestra which was released as an Okeh 78, 40822. Carmichael would later write many popular jazz standards, including "Stardust" (1927), "Georgia on My Mind" (1930) and "Lazy River" (1931).[1]
