Biography

Harry James was. from his first band assignment with Benny Goodman, a virtuoso instrumentalist, and it was only a short time before he headed the Harry James Orchestra. That band rivaled every major jazz orchestra in the business, Benny, Artie Shaw, Charlie Barnett, Charlie Spivak, etc. Harry’s sound and technique were not only beautiful, but easily recognized in a section or in front of any orchestra. He was also a great supporter of fine musicians.

    Harry James had probably the finest technique and tone of any trumpet player of his time. Benny Goodman was fortunate to have him in his band for a short period of time; Harry was in a class by himself. Roger Plafkin--Plafkin Farms-View on Photobucket.com and Webshots.com--1-616-676-0590
