This month’s guest conductor is Marie (aka Xmas Dolly), the real conductor of this crazy train we call Monday’s Music Moves Me. She wanted to hear some Glenn Miller songs. To be unique (which, as everybody knows, is something I like to do), I decided to take the approach of songs that Miller wrote, whether or not he and his orchestra played them or not. I found a Wikipedia page that had a list of his compositions and built a list of ten of them. Some of these are done by Glenn and his orchestra, others by Glenn as a sideman. That page in Wikipedia tells all.
- Jack Teagarden, "I Swung The Election"
- Glenn Miller, "Doin’ The Jive"
- Glenn Miller, "When Icky Morgan Plays The Organ"
- Benny Goodman & His Boys, "Room 1411"
- Glenn Miller, "Sold American"
- The Dorsey Brothers, "Annie’s Cousin Fanny"
- The Dorsey Brothers, "Dese Dem Dose"
- Glenn Miller, "Solo Hop"
- Glenn Miller, "Community Swing"
- Glenn Miller, "Boom Shot"
And that’s Monday’s Music Moves Me for March 7, 2022.
