Harry James in a black tux with a black bow tie and white carnation
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To/'Shirley Jeane'/Best Wishes/Harry James". B/w, 8x10. Name imprinted at lower margin. The son of circus performers, Harry James (1916-1983) was an outstanding trumpet player who left Benny Goodman's orchestra to form his own band in 1939, the year a young singer named Frank Sinatra made his first recordings with him. A popular favorite in the swing era, he continued to tour with a more jazz-oriented sound after the big bands waned in popularity. A star on radio, James had his own TV program in 1951. James also appeared in several films in the 1940s and 1950s; his dubbed trumpet is heard in Kirk Douglas' Man With a Horn (1950). Surface creases seen head on. Corners creased. Lightly toned. Otherwise fine condition.
