ONE OF THE BEST BIG BAND COLLECTIONS !

"What can you say about Harry James and his band that has not been said time and time again, year after year, generation after generation? Harry James is the name synonymous with the trumpet. He inspired more trumpet players than any living musician with his brilliant technique, soulful balladeering and high powered jazz solos backed by a sometimes beautiful orchestra complete with strings and most often with a thundering, swinging jazz band. This collection is one of the best available showing the many moods and persoalities of the Man With The Horn. For those who thought Harry played to the more commercial sensibilities of the audience one need only listen to his sensitive and plaintiff rendition of "Lover Man". That cut alone is worth the price of the album. Add to that some of the best most swinging versions of "Blues Like" and "The Jazz Connoisseur". It's easy to see why Harry James' career was so long and successful and his recordings remain in demand."
