Description

The holidays will be in full swing, as the inimitable style of the Harry James Orchestra delivers Yule-time favorites along with classic tracks like “I’ll Get By,” “I Don’t Want to Walk Without You,” “I Cried for You,” “I Had the Craziest Dream” and “I’ve Heard That Song Before” — all under the direction of lead trumpet virtuoso Fred Radke — a bravura performance!
