about

During a career that spanned eight decades, James “Rosy” McHargue (1902-1999) was known and respected as a clarinetist, arranger, vocalist, and as a brilliant performer on the rarely heard C-melody saxophone. In his later years he became a friend and mentor to aspiring young musicians like myself. When he passed away, he bequeathed to me a trunk full of his arrangements. Rosy had a rare talent for finding obscure songs that deserve to be heard. "Where the Morning Glories Grow: A Centennial Remembrance of Rosy McHargue" is a loving tribute to the man and his music - novelty songs, hot jazz stomps, and tender, heart-wrenching tales of lost love. None of these arrangements were commercially recorded during Rosy's lifetime. Most of the musicians on this album were Rosy's friends and disciples, who performed with him, admired him, and were admired BY him. -Dan Levinson
