About

“A band ought to have a sound all of its own. It ought to have a personality.” – Glenn Miller

The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra is a swing dance band formed by Glenn Miller in 1938. The band was arranged around a clarinet and tenor saxophone playing melody, while three other saxophones played the harmony. This arrangement was different from usual and allowed Miller to develop his own style and sound, which made him and his orchestra one of the greatest and well-known of the swing era.
