“America means freedom and there’s no expression of freedom quite so sincere as music”
– Glenn Miller
In addition to giving us such Big Band classics as “in the Mood”, “String of Pearls”, “Tuxedo Junction”, and the hauntingly beautiful “Moonlight Serenade“, Glenn Miller created and led the 50-piece Army Air Force Band which entertained the allied troops in the European theater during WWII.
General Jimmy Doolittle said of Miller’s AAF Band, “Next to a letter from home, that organization was the greatest morale builder in the European Theater of Operations.”
