S-a nascut in Georgia in 1916, iar peste 8 ani incepea sa invete tainele instrumentului care il va transforma intr-unul dintre cei mai admirati  si apreciati jazz-isti.

Nu va voi mai spune multe, internetul fiind plin de informatii despre Harry. Doar ii voi cita pe cei de la jazztime.com: „In his prime, a period that lasted far longer for him than it did for most trumpeters, Harry James was the living definition of a celebrity virtuoso, a modern-day Paganini or Liszt. He could swing with great flamboyance and heat, he could play the blues with sincerity, and he could endow ballads with “schmaltzy” romanticism.” [ http://jazztimes.com/articles/20552-trumpet-blues-the-life-of-harry-james-peter-j-levinson ] si va voi lasa in compania a doua opere semnate Haryy James:

Concert pentru trompeta

It’s Been A Long, Long Time

Enjoy!!
