Isham Jones led a major jazz-influenced dance band during the 1920s. Seventeen of his better performances that featured cornetist Louis Panico during 1922-1924 highlight this CD, including "Those Longing for You Blues," "Aunt Hagar's Children Blues," "Somebody's Wrong," and "Never Again." One can appreciate why Panico was held in such high regard during this early period. The CD also has six numbers from 1925-1926 (including "Riverboat Shuffle" and "Charleston") before Jones' music became much more commercial. A worthy acquisition.
