In Person/The Hi-Fi Sounds of Harry James

In Person/The Hi-Fi Sounds of Harry James

by Harry James



If you are a fan of Harry James, this is likely a recording you'll want to find unless you own them already. Still, having all four of these original recordings -- One Night Stand, Harry James in Hi-Fi, Jazz Session, and More Harry James in Hi-Fi all together -- is a treat. Though well beyond his initial foray into big-band swing jazz, but not past his prime, James is here on two CDs that document live concert dates at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago in October of 1952, in Hollywood during the winter of 1954 and 1955, and in July of 1955. There are also nine studio tracks tacked on to the end of the second disc. The recordings are full, rich and clean, and hard to deny as to their high quality. A recommended item of more than just curio cabinet status, it's definitely one for nostalgia buffs, and the ages.
