Guitarist Danny Gatton recorded this tune years ago — I’m assuming it is a tribute to pianist and Hammond B-3 organist Bill Doggett and his guitarist Billy Butler:

Also check out the inspiration (I assume) for Sky King. A classic Bill Doggett instrumental from way back before I was even thinking of playing music. They should teach this stuff in school! Listen well to Clifford Scott’s wonderful tenor sax playing, as well as Billy Butler’s Charlie Christian-inspired guitar work.
