Welcome to my Music Diary – today for the 15th December!
On the 15th December 1944, an aircraft with bandleader Glenn Miller disappeared over the English channel. Miller – still missing in action – was travelling to entertain the U.S. troops during World War II. From 1939 to 1943 the American musician, arranger, composer and bandleader was the best-selling record artist during the Swing era. He recorded many evergreens like „In the Mood„, „Moonlight Serenade„, „Pennsylvania 6-5000„, „Chattanooga Choo Choo„, „A String of Pearls„, „At Last“ and „Little Brown Jug„. Glenn Miller’s life was adopted for the movie „The Glenn Miller Story“ (1954) directed by Anthony Mann and starring James Stewart as the central character.
