For My Sweetheart Lyrics by Gus Kahn, Music by Walter Donaldson Leo Reisman and His Orchestra Recorded July 12, 1926 Columbia 754-D
Leo Reisman was born in Boston, Massachussetts, in 1897, and soon became an accomplished violinist and piano player. Although he was first violinist with the Baltimore Symphony orchestra, he left classical music to form his own dance band, playing in hotels and touring the country before settling in 1919 at the Hotel Brunswick in Boston for ten years, where it played for the local high society. In 1929 the band moved to the Central Park Casino in New York and then to the Waldorf-Astoria for a considerable time. Big names associated with the band include pianists Nat Brandwynne and Eddy Duchin, and vocalists Lee Wiley, Fred Astaire and Dinah Shore. Reisman died in December 1961.
