Isham Jones Orchestra - "Do You Ever Think of Me" (1921)

One more for the night, you say? Absolutely! Here is the Isham Jones orchestra. Jones, born in Ohio and raised in Saginaw, Michigan, moved to Chicago in 1915 and used it as his home base until the 1930s. I have a number of Isham Jones 78s that I inherited from my grandfather, so hearing the band always makes me a bit nostalgic. You can listen to many of Jones' recordings with the Rainbo Orchestra on YouTube.

The member who uploaded it to YouTube and put together this excellent video had this to say:

The video features tuba/Sousaphone player John Kuhn. also known as "Chief Red Cloud." Kuhn was born on the Sioux Reservation in Montana, and by 1920 was considered one of the very finest performers on this instrument. While attending the Haskell Institute in Kansas he studied modern music and had lessons on the tuba. He later joined Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and toured with the band in Europe. After returning to the United States, he joined the Dennison Wheelock Indian Band and then was discovered by John Philip Sousa who recruited him for the famous Sousa Band. Kuhn was with the Sousa Band from 1915 to 1919. In 1920 he joined Isham Jones' Rainbo Orchestra in Chicago and played the Sousaphone for Isham Jones during the early 1920s. Tom Lord's jazz discography credits Kuhn with 41 recordings between 1920 and 1929. He was also noted for authoring music instruction methods for the tuba, some which are still being sold. I could not find any biographical information beyond 1930.
