    From the YouTube comments, not verified but still:

    As it can be remembered, the original US Air Force band was directed by the famous band leader Major Glen Miller who disappeared over the English Channel during WWII. The new Glen Miller Air Force Band came marching-in one unforgettable evening when I was a new Airman at Keesler Air Force back in the mid-50’s. The Base Commander led the march in front of the band with flags flowing and the band following him into Arnold Hall for the most sentimental musical concert I ever attended. We still had a lot of WWII veterans in active service, including the Base Commander and the whole evening turned into a tearjerker!!! Unforgettable to see so many people that sacrificed so much to keep us free, in one building.

    What an incredible feat this video is. Even down to the editing and cinematography.

      They do a video like this every Christmas. I once saw the Glenn Miller memorial orchestra back in the 1960’s, and it was held in a place where we were able to dance. Really fun time. Not the Air Force band, of course!


  3. Let it not ever be said that I’m not resourceful.

    Such fantastically good music.

    My Nana on Mom’s side was into Glenn Miller. I got a heavy dose.

    Astounding stuff. I mean, I could make this — I suppose, maybe — with FL Studio, but I doubt it.

    I mean I listen to Chopin and Rachmaninoff, and it all soaks in. This was the best era of music, I think sometimes. I mean Glenn’s era, not Sergei’s.

    Oh the livin’s easy.
