FTL: Glenn Miller Orchestra

Today’s pro­gramme is the com­plete Glenn Miller Band col­lec­tion from 1938 to 1942. One of the ear­ly radio per­son­al­i­ties and also known for his unique sound that made his orches­tra dif­fer­ent from oth­er big bands of the era. Glenn Miller set the stan­dard from then on for any jazz and swing sound there­after. He was a pro­lif­ic com­pos­er who also con­tributed lyrics and music for many oth­er songs, while col­lab­o­rat­ing with many of his costars who were quite often big names them­selves. Many of his band mem­ber alum­ni lat­er went on to larg­er fame them­selves in a vari­ety of careers.
