… the “swing” music of the 1940’s? Calling all of you jivesters to put on your saddle shoes and cut a rug! You don’t have to remember World War II or have been alive in the 40’s to appreciate The Best of Harry James and His Orchestra. This CD is music at its best.
Harry James will have you tapping you toes as you listen to such memorable songs as Ciribiribin, You Made Me Love You, September Song, Two O’clock Jump and eight other wonderful tunes that only Harry can belt out on his trumpet. Harry James was not only one of the fantastic band leaders of the 40’s, but he and his orchestra were also in several of the great movie musicals of that time. Harry James was once married to movie star Betty Grable.
