In general, the RCA "Greatest Hits" series who bought Jazz poor, with music by just a fraction of career musicians who do not represent "their greatest success" (album by Count Basie and Louis Armstrong album is very weak), but this CD really really deliver the goods. Glenn Miller was the RCA Victor recording artist for most of his career, so that the label was the best of the best on this CD. If you are new to Mr. Miller, or a big band and swing in general, here is a good way to go and economically.

Pieces on this album are the most successful period of Miller in 1938, when he formed a new group and suddenly became a sensation, until mid-summer 1942 when he joined the Air Force to form a new military relationship. "King Porter Stomp" is the beginning here, and showed her more jazzy Miller. Noting the last (July 1942) is a song, a very sweet "That Old Black Magic" (with vocals by Skip Nelson and the modern Aires) between the two. The music is owned by the big band era of Many reputable breeders Spirit during the WWII Glenn Miller. is an important part of the soundtrack of American involvement in the conflict. "In the Mood," a catchy dance and perhaps a piece of the best known tunes, big band ever, leading to the collection. Even today, this song everyone from primary school to seniors on the floor. Everyone knows this section, and as each person. Other popular mind-coach of the war is "Do not sit under the apple tree", sung by Tex Beneke and the Texas modern Aires. The swing band with great sophistication on songs like "Pearl" (which demonstrates the ingenuity of arranger Glenn / composer Jerry Gray), bounced off the Little Brown Jug ", and almost exhausted and swinging on "Tuxedo Junction" and Glenn, who borrowed a conductor Erskine Hawkins, after hearing his band play a version of it. Glenn great vocal group, Tex Beneke and the Texas modern Aires (with Marion Hutton) also sang two songs most popular at the time: "I have a girl in Kalamazoo" and "Chatanooga Choo Choo 'band. also plays some nice slow song "Sunrise Serenade" and their theme song, the romantic "Moonlight Serenade" And do not forget a good start. and stopping the song "Pennsylvania 6-5000," everyone likes to cry as well.

Unfortunately, Glenn Miller did not live up to the end of the war, he helped America to come see his plane disappeared in the English Channel in December 1944.

Glenn Miller, the other says, not just music for the elderly. "Young people are constantly under his charm and his music is still very popular today with people of all ages. This is an important part of higher education Glenn. It is not the best band ever size: no more hard rock, jazz band Some, like Count Basie and Benny Goodman. It is not a genius as a composer and Duke Ellington. It's just a trombone meaning, and not a virtuoso of his instrument as Tommy Dorsey or Artie Shaw on trombone, clarinet. But it does make something important: it propagates swing in all corners of the world, and for all ages, with his populist, happy happy, and stylish. members of the band are very talented, and they formed a tight group. They play pop music, of course, but pop music has timed out. And perhaps most importantly, the Glenn Miller Orchestra is the "gate" of the band. It is often the swing big bands most people hear and listen to bring the audience in exploring the wonderful era of American music, jazz, when the king. For me personally, I was introduced to Glenn Miller Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Artie Shaw, and many twists and turns of Miles Davis. I am grateful to the great Glenn Miller.
