Harry James was, along with many other more well known artists of the WWII era (ie. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey) a pioneer of swing in it's rawest form. The basic foundations of his blues inspired compositions have been the baseboard of jump jivin' dancehall swing that we hear all over the radio today and emulated by modern artists such as The Stray Cats and a myriad of Rockabilly groups heretofore and everything in between. James went all over the map with it, but never becoming blasé or redundant. He had an inimitable knack for composing low-slung bluesy trumpet laden instrumentals right alongside jazz infused swinging jump jive and on into Doris Day backed vocal ballads, as can be heard on the wonderful soundtrack to the movie 'Young Man With A Horn' which featured James' orchestra and the man's wildly talented trumpet virtuoso. James' music inspired more than this wonderful musician was ever given credit for, and any lover of the swing era would be amiss to not listen to, and discover what this awesome musician gave to us.
