At the very peak of the band’s career, America was forced into war in 1941 after Pearl Harbor, a situation which caused a number of good swing orchestras to disband. Unlike these, Harry James added to his already busy schedule, tours of the U.S. Army camps, air and Naval bases and, via short wave radio, broadcasts throughout the world, bringing a breath of home to war weary servicemen and women. . So it was, all through the war years, that the James “Music-Makers” (as the band came to be known) continued, with slight changes of personnel from time to time, into the uncertain years following the cessation of hostilities in 1945. Our album presents the James band as it sounded in the Autumn of 1946, a sound which has never been bettered. We offer here a varied selection of instrumental and vocal numbers of the period, as well as old friends, given a treatment that still sounds fresh today. James proves here that his band could provide sympathetic backing to such contemporary vocal numbers as “Five Minutes More” “Oh! But I Do” and “Seems Like Old Times” (incidentally, the signature tune of the successful T.V. series “Looks Familiar”), as well as raising the roof with such instrumental standards as his own composition “Flash” and oldies like “Blue Skies” “Lover come Back To Me” and “Two O’Clock Jump.”
