OFAM's Emerald City Jazz Kings
A String of Pearls
The Legacy of Glenn Miller
Sat, Oct 23, 7:30 - 10:00 pm
Concert Hall, FEC
Sixty years ago this December Glenn Miller’s military plane disappeared over the English Channel. In the succeeding years, Miller has become an American legend: his most famous recordings -- "In The Mood", "A String Of Pearls", "Pennsylvania 6-5000", "Tuxedo Junction", and many others, are almost as well-known today as they were when they were recorded in 1939-42. No other American popular recordings have peristed like Miller’s, crossing many generational boundaries. The Jazz Kings will examine not only the famous recordings of Glenn Miller, but also those of the early groups with which he performed, and the groups which sprang up after his death.
