Composer, band leader, arranger, and trombonist, Glenn Miller was, and remains, one of America’s most popular musical figures. Miller’s band was noted for featuring a distinctive sound developed from the blending of one clarinet with four saxophones. The band played a mix of smooth, danceable ballads and crisp, driving swing numbers.
 
Miller was educated at the University of Colorado, and in 1926 joined Ben Pollack’s band as a trombonist. By 1930 he was in demand as a free-lance musician in New York City. Soon he was organizing bands for big-name band leaders, including the Dorsey brothers and Ray Noble. In 1937 he attempted to form his own orchestra, but failed. He tried again in 1938, and within a year was an international success.
 
At the start of World War II, Miller joined the U.S. Army Air Force. He attained the rank of captain and then major, as leader of the Air Force band in Europe. While flying from England to Paris in 1944, his plane disappeared and was never recovered.
 
Miller’s hit records include “In the Mood,” “Little Brown Jug,” “Sunrise Serenade,” and “Moonlight Serenade” – the band’s theme song. He also made two movies: Sun Valley Serenade and Orchestra Wives.
