Part 6 - This is the Best of Harry James

Big Band Bash

This is The Best of continues this week with a focus on the music of Harry James. Harry had a great tone and an excellent technique that made him one of the leading trumpeters of the swing era. He started his band in 1938 and struggled for a while until he added strings and started playing sentimental favorites that struck a chord with many people during World War 2. He also had an ear for great vocalists and there were many that sang with his band. Some of the great ones were Frank Sinatra, Helen Forrest, Dick Haymes and Kitty Kallen. I hope you enjoy the music of Harry James on our This Is The Best Of series. Thank you all so much for listening. Please visit this podcast at http://bigbandbashfm.blogspot.com

MUSIC PROGRAM " Harry James Orchestra "


Harry Haag James (March 15, 1916 – July 5, 1983) was an American musician who is best known as a trumpet-playing band leader who led a big band from 1939 to 1946. He broke up his band for a short period in 1947 but shortly after he reorganized and was active again with his band from then until his death in 1983. He was especially known among musicians for his technical proficiency as well as his tone, and was influential on new trumpet players from the late 1930s into the 1940s. He was also an actor in a number of films that usually featured his band. US NAVY Transcription.

Volume 4: Harry James Greatest Hits

The Spinning My Dad's Vinyl Podcast

The trumpet was the main interest my dad and I had in common when it came to music. My dad played trumpet in high school. I played that same trumpet in high school and college. In fact I still play it every year in my high school alumni marching band. So it was only natural for him to have tons of albums featuring trumpet players. In this episode, I will introduce the first of many trumpet players included in my dad’s collection. This includes one of the very first recordings of my dad’s all time favorite singer.

Back Beat Boogie - Harry James and His "New" Jazz Band in 1956.  When James scaled back his big band, he used his key sidemen (Nick Buono, Juan Tizol, Willie Smith, Herbie Steward, Larry Kinnamon, Foy Blanton, and Buddy Rich) to launch this interesting group.  Never commercially recorded, these sides come from transcriptions for the USMC and feature vocals by Buddy Rich and Peggy King.  Also, two bonus cuts of small groups from the James band of the mid-late 1940's featuring Willie Smith.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/john-clark49/support
