" A band ought to have a sound all of its own. It ought to have a personality. "
- Glenn Miller
Here's a neat fact straight from the official Glenn Miller website where I found the above quote:
"While picking the 45 members of his Army Air Force Band, Miller rejected Henry Mancini, a 19-year-old piano player. Ten years later, Mancini wrote the title theme and arranged the music for the film The Glenn Miller Story."
Which is, by the way, a terrific movie, albeit with a very sad ending. What's your favorite Glenn Miller song?
