Reisman, originally a classical violinist, was one of the greatest bandleaders, popular from the end of the 1910's till the early 1940's (photograph was taken around 1920). During his 1929-1933 Victor period, he recorded many lesser-known period Broadway songs, some of which were recorded by no other band. He also had the habit of featuring composers and Broadway performers as band vocalists, including Harold Arlen, Fred Astaire, Clifton Webb, and Arthur Schwartz. He also featured Lee Wiley in 1931-32 for her first 3 recordings. More often than not, his vocalists were Frank Luther, Dick Robertson and later Sally Singer and George Beuler. A notable recording from this era was "Happy Days Are Here Again" in 1929. Among his more popular hits were his #1 recordings of Cole Porter's "Night and Day” (1932) and Con Conrad's “The Continental" (1934). Eddy Duchin was a band member. This exquisite record was made in 1933. Vocal by Harold Arlen. Sound is slightly dimmed because of the worn disc.

No Lou, for this session Rust credits Reisman as the leader and violinist. It is one of my favorite tunes too.

Thank you Genia! I like the comparison to chocolate as you're right this is all soft- and smoothness. This might well be one of most intimate songs, definitely in the most delicate version I know.

I fully agree Ginny, this song is so delicate and touching. So glad you love it!

He did, Lou and as far as I'm concerned a very lovely version. Despite the very noisy (filtered) copy, that's why I wanted to post it.
