Considered the father of jazz violin, Venuti pioneered the use of string instruments in jazz along with the guitarist Eddie Lang, a childhood friend of his. He worked with Benny Goodman, the Dorsey Brothers, Bing Crosby, Bix Beiderbecke, Jack Teagarden, the Boswell Sisters and most of the other important white jazz and semi-jazz figures of the late 1920s and early 1930s. Venuti and Lang recorded a series of milestone jazz records for the OKeh label during the 1920s. However, following Lang's early death in 1933, his career began to wane, though he continued performing through the 1930s. This lovely side was recorded shortly after Lang's passing, in 1933. Vocal by Slim Fortier.

Very welcome Jack! Joe and Eddie formed a legendary duet, but this one was recorded immediately after Lang's death.
