James Session

Be the first to review this product

James Session is a big swing chart that features Trumpet, Drums, Trombone & Alto Sax. HJ recorded his chart in 1942 & again in 1955. We have concentrated on the later version, though we have used the Trombone solo from the 42 recording. We have also shortened the final Trumpet cadenza &  added in the ending from the earlier version to bring the chart to a positive close. HJ's lead line & Willie Smiths' 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.
