Mel Powell, Peanuts Hucko, Bernie Privin and others were members of Glenn Miller’s Army Air Force Band, which arrived in newly-liberated Paris, although Miller himself was tragically lost. They recorded several small band sessions, and Powell recorded a number of piano solos, very much under the influence of Teddy Wilson, comparable to Hucko’s emulation of Benny Goodman. Django Reinhardt was present on one session. Our group consists of Wilber, Hyman, Sandke, Stripling, Alden, Miller and Tarpinian. Tunes include S’Wonderful, If Dreams Come True, Hallelujah, She’s Funny That Way, Blue Skies, and Pennies From Heaven.
