2 GRAMMY Nominations

Isham Jones, Happy: The 1920 Rainbo Orchestra Sides

Years before writing "It Had to Be You" and "I'll See You in My Dreams," Isham Jones honed his craft at Mann's Rainbo Gardens in Chicago—composing, arranging, and perfecting songs that he and his band performed nightly before the dinner-and-dance patrons. Jones' style, capturing elements of the social dance craze of the 1910s and anticipating the jazz revolution of the 1920s, offers a rare glimpse into the beginnings of the era of great American dance bands. Happy presents remarkable restorations of all 37 sides Jones' Rainbo Orchestra recorded in 1920 and includes a 32-page booklet with notes by Grammy-nominated author and trombonist David Sager.

To celebrate the set's GRAMMY nominations for Best Historical Album and Best Album Notes, we've placed Happy on sale for $22.99 for the rest of December.
