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. A 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, he had his own TV program in 1951. James appeared in several films in the 1940s and 1950s; his dubbed trumpet is heard in Kirk Douglas's Man With a Horn (1950). Ink note in an unknown hand: "9/5 dues" at left. Vertical fold at center. Pinhead-sized hole at top center. Bank cancellation stamps on front and verso, affecting signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
