Powerful display of big band sound and trumper virtuoso
1 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

What a wonderful thing to see one of the great big bands, how powerful the sound is, how disiplined the musicians are. To see and hear Harry James's trumpet playing from soft and mellow to fast and powerful is a reat treat. One wonders how a person can play such a number as Flight of the Bumblebee on a horn with only 3 valves as he did with the accordian player accompanying him. Everyone should treat themselves to the musical experience and musicianship shown here!
