Glenn Miller and His Orchestra was an American swing dance band formed by Glenn Miller in 1938. Arranged around a clarinet and tenor saxophone playing melody, and three other saxophones playing harmony, the band became the most popular and commercially successful dance orchestra of the Swing era and one of the greatest singles charting acts of the 20th century.

Their sound became a popular hit on the radios and in shows for huge audiences though it was often criticized by jazz and other genre musicians at the time and to this day. Having the saxophone play what was often the clarinet’s role in these days was, in Miller’s own reasoning, one of the main.
Miller and his band appeared in two Twentieth Century Fox films. In 1941's Sun Valley Serenade, they were major members of the cast, which also featured comedian Milton Berle, and Dorothy Dandridge with the Nicholas Brothers in the show-stopping song and dance number, Chattanooga Choo Choo. It had a makeup similar to the Army Air Forces Band: It included a large string section and, at least initially, about two-thirds of the musicians were alumni of either the civilian or AAF orchestras .
Remembering The Glenn Miller Army Air Forces Orchestra. You could hear detail in those AAF recordings that Miller's civilian orchestra 78's never would have revealed, with the AAF recordings using much better recording technology. Having listened to them for that long, I feel like I am familiar with the originals. Now comes this wonderful tribute album and I am sitting here smiling, rediscovering this all over again. After being accepted in the Army, Glenn's civilian band played their last concert in Passaic, New Jersey on September 27, 1942. This effort to modernize the military bands has made a huge impact on the bands and their sound. This album is a great tribute to the legendary and visionary musician.
