A night with the Glenn Miller Orchestra

We saw the Glenn Miller Orchestra tonight at a sold out theater.  Big Band music is timeless.  Here are a few snippets...  I was very surprised to see many twenty somethings buying the bands CD.  Only enough time tonight to upload the clip in MOV format.  I'll try to repost it as a more universal MP4 this weekend. Sorry if the MOV file doesn't play on your computer...

I love big band music and have several CD's.  What a delight to see and hear the Glenn Miller Orchestra tonight.  As the show went on, I was imagining what it must have been like to hear these songs on the radio back in the 30's and 40's.  Glenn Miller's band only existed from '38 to '42 and in that time composed over 800 pieces.
