 Isham Jones Discography (Slipcue.Com E-Zine)
Isham Jones (1894-1956) was one of the most important and most influential bandleaders of the early 20th Century.
A Midwesterner who dominated the Chicago scene, Jones resisted efforts to call his music "jazz", although he was clearly a pioneer in developing the sleek, orchestral style of the big band era, and helped popularize dance styles which were considered vulgar and low-class by the elite of the times.
Like many of the early dance orchestras, the Jones band was also a training ground for some of the best musicians of the big band era: Woody Herman took over the Jones organization in 1936, after Jones went into temporary retirement, and it was here that the Herman's Thundering Herd found its start.
