John Cooper

In A Relaxed Mood
Harry James

A 1965 James septet session on MGM Records with Corky Corcoran on tenor, Ray Sims on trombone and a rhythm section with Buddy Rich features James on an astoundingly mellow performance of "Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most". James and Corcoran take the solos.

No CD yet, it seems.

Great list, Marc! Every year I put together a "spring songs" show for Afterglow, and there are several versions here I've never encountered before. A couple I really dig are Dick and Kiz Harp's take on "Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most" (AGAIN! DICK AND KIZ HARP AT THE 90TH FLOOR) and Nina Simone's version of "Spring Is Here" (THE COLPIX YEARS).
