What's this famous jazz/big band/swing dancing song?

I saw a rerun of Everybody Loves Raymond
recently ("Dancing with Debra") that dealt with the swing dancing craze that was so popular back in the 90s. The penultimate scene of the episode was largely wordless, with the actions of the characters choreographed with a very iconic swing dancing number.
I'd like to know what this piece was called or who made it, but my Google fu has utterly failed. I've searched iTunes, browsed Wikipedia for the chart-topping big band hits, even given the "hum that tune" Midomi service a whirl, but no dice.
I did, however, manage to snag a copy of the episode and recorded part of the song for the hive mind. Here's the clip:
I hope the laugh track isn't too distracting...
