INCLUDES 7 BONUS TRACKS
This release presents the original soundtrack of the classic 1950 Michael Curtiz film Young Man with a Horn. A musical drama based on the eponymous novel by Dorothy Baker, it is loosely inspired by the life of legendary jazz cornetist Bix Beiderbecke. The movie stars Kirk Douglas, Lauren Bacall, Doris Day, and Hoagy Carmichael, and the superb soundtrack included vocals by Day backed by Harry James, who doubled for Kirk Douglas on trumpet.
The original soundtrack is complemented here by studio recordings made by Doris Day and Harry James of tunes from the film. As a bonus, we have added two songs by Day and James that complete their collaborative studio recordings, as well as further recordings by the trumpeter of songs from the soundtrack.
