Fisbach's Charleston Orchester's rendition of I Never Realized is one of the highlights of European jazz of the 1920s. The arrangment of the song was quite "modern" for 1925 and feature solos on the saxophone, piano, trumpet and a bass brass instrument. The song was written in 1919 by American songwriter Melville Gideon and was included in the musical revue "Buddies" which opened in New York in 1919 and in London in 1920, but it is Fisbach's jazz treatment of the song that makes it interesting.
