Week four of celebrating what would have been Glenn Miller’s 120th birthday March first, brings us to another album from a different orchestra playing music made famous by Miller.

A couple of weeks ago I played an album by Bobby Hackett. THAT Bobby actually played with Glenn Miller before world war 2. Music you are about to hear features the Bobby Krane Orchestra. THIS Bobby…doesn’t exist.

So get ready to hear recordings that came from a sound-alike record label playing more of that famous clarinet over saxophone swing in Volume 169: Krane’s Miller Tribute.
