Description: Swing - Advanced

Publisher: Lush Life Music

Written by Jack Matthias (of "Trumpet Blues & Cantabile" fame) for the Harry James Orchestra, "James Session" is a big swing chart that features Trumpet, Drums, Trombone and Alto Sax. James recorded this chart in 1942 and again in 1955. The later version is presented here, though the Trombone solo from the 1942 recording is featured. Also the final Trumpet cadenza has been shortened and the ending from the earlier version has been added in to bring the chart to a positive close. HJ's lead line and Willie Smith's Alto solos are fully written out, as are the first 100 measures of the Cadenza as played by HJ. This is a raw, energy-packed piece, great for dancing or concert work. There are no sax doubles.
