reasons I dig big band jazz so much. This album brings back a lot of memories, that's for sure.
But another reason I dig this disc so much is that it is one great album from Capitol Records showcasing the great
trumpeter Harry James. I don't usually go for those "best of" type albums but this is definitely one happy exception. From the first track to the last, this album swings and the singing by---I guess its Helen Forrest (the liner notes make no mention at all) fits perfectly with the arrangements by whoever did them. The first track called
"The Mole" is definitely one of the standouts here with its great swinging rhythms and James' superb playing. The other great tracks are "Sleepy Lagoon", "Two O'Clock Jump" and, hell, all of them are great. Its just under thirty
minutes in total and I wish they had put some more tracks here but the original tracks are just fine.
I'm so happy that I got this from amazon at such an affordable price (I paid one cent for this!) and it is such great bargains like this that will keep me as a regular amazon customer.
So if you are a neophyte looking for some Harry James music to start off with look no further, this album is it!!
