Happy Birthday: Harry James!
Harry James (March 15, 1916 – July 5, 1983), was an musician and bandleader. James was an instrumentalist of the swing era, employing a bravura playing style that made his trumpet work identifiable. He was one of the most popular bandleaders of the first half of the 1940s, and he continued to lead his band until just before his death, 40 years later.
