I am planning to feature Woody Herman’ work on this next Sunday.

Woody Herman took over the band from Isham Jones.

I am not familiar with Isham Jones but I love his songs.

So I would like to post about Isham Jones’ work this week.

先月、例会の準備でWoody Hermanの初期の活動について調べていました。

1936年Woody HermanはIsham Jonesのバンドを引き継ぎ自己のオーケストラとして活動を始めます。

私自身Isham Jonesについて詳しくありませんが彼の曲は大好きです。

今週はIsham Jonesが作曲した名曲にお付き合い下さい。
