    This yet another exquisite performance by this band. Isham Jones (1894-1956) formed at the age of 20 his own orchestra in Michigan. In 1923, he took his band to London where he played at the Kit-Cat Club and he is said to have been one of the first to take jazz to Europe. Prior to that tour, he had played at the Lincoln, McAlpin and Commodore hotels in New York City. Jones wrote more than 200 songs, of which 40 or more became hits! One of the last bands led by Jones in 1936 was known as the Isham Jones Juniors. The group recorded for Decca and later became the first band led by Woody Herman. The coming of swing and stylized bands gradually discouraged Jones, and during the last years of his life he decided to concentrate on writing songs. This wonderful song was recorded in 1934. The vocal is by Joe Martin.
