Harry James was known among his contemporaries for his full tone, clean style, and virtuosic technical proficiency. Recordings of James with his orchestra on labels like MGM, Columbia, and 20th Century Fox are undeniable parts of the modern jazz canon. This collection contains transcriptions of James’ most popular solos, as well as arrangements of these solos for trumpet and piano. However, the feature work in this collection is the Harry James Trumpet Method.
This method was focused on helping young musicians develop their basic musical and technical abilities on the trumpet alongside their development of unique musical style. Amazingly, this book went out of production for years, and qPress has been thrilled to offer a re-release of it in partnership with Robbins Music.
