Isham Jones’ compositions(2) “There Is No Greater Love”

October 04,2017

Isham Jones led one of the finest dance bands of all time for some seventeen years from 1919 to 1936.

“There Is No Greater Love” lyrics by Marty Symes was the last hit before the bandleader turned over to Woody Herman in 1936.

「There Is No Greater Love」(作詞 Marty Symes)は1936年に作曲されました。

この曲はWoody Hermanがバンドリーダーを引継ぐ直前のヒット作品でした。

本日紹介する中でAmy Winehouseは異色の存在だと思います。
