Harry James And His Orchestra 1948-49 is a double album by American trumpeter Harry James with The Harry James Orchestra. The album consists of live radio transcripts recorded during 1948 and 1949 and was released in 1969 by Big Band Landmarks (Volumes X-XI). As bop surpassed swing by the late 1940s, James was surprisingly open to its influence.
Hot Jazz/Big Band era crossover is this album's oldest waxing. SIDE THREE . "Live" Hamp improv on Hoagy Carmichael's classic is for a noisy (dinner?) crowd, with one man grunting encouragement after every vibe run. Includes the famous "call and response" sequence. SIDE ONE Let's Dance - Benny Goodman & orch. 10/24/39) You Made Me Love You - Harry James & orch. 5/20/41) Leap Frog - Les Brown & orch.
