James was a swing-era bandleader and trumpet player. After playing briefly with the Benny Goodman orchestra, he established his own band in 1939 and reached the height of his popularity in the mid-1940s. During the 1950s and 1960s, James played mainly in various Las Vegas lounges. He continued performing until shortly before his death in 1983.
