Glenn Miller Orchestra - Still Wowing Crowds!

One of the biggest swing bands, The Glenn Miller Orchestra, had U.S. baby boomers jiving and swooning when they played melodies like, "Chattanooga Choo, Choo", "In The Mood" and "Tuxedo Junction". They are still wowing crowds today in the U.S.

Our local night-clubs and cabarets in the 60s played his music too. Many of the patrons danced to Glenn Miller's melodies and most Singapore baby boomers are familiar with his songs. It was a movie, "The Glenn Miller Story," and starred James Stewart that attracted Singapore music lovers to him all over again.
Miller could have died in 1944 while flying in a plane over the English Channel.

Is that more than 20 strong up there (image)?
