"Beale Street Blues" is a 1916 song by American composer and lyricist W.C. Handy. The title refers to Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee, the main entertainment district for the city's African American population in the early part of the twentieth century, and a place closely associated with the development of the blues.
"Beale Street Blues" has been recorded by dozens of noted artists, from early recordings by Fats Waller and Jack Teagarden, to more modern versions by Nat King Cole, Lena Horne, and Tommy Dorsey. This arrangement is scored for horn quartet.
