Let's dance . .

The Original Charleston (1926) Isham Jones & His Orchestra

Today we remember Isham Jones (31 January 1894 – 19 October 1956), composer and bandleader. Thank you for all the wonderful music - Happy Birthday!

You may not have heard of Isham Jones, but I'm sure you have listened to his compositions It Had to Be YouI'll See You in My Dreams and many more.

Isham Jones led one of the most popular and finest dance bands in the 1920s and 1930s.  He came a long way from the coal mines to share his musical talents and leave us a delightful legacy.  So, let's dance with Isham Jones and Band . . .
