Originally formed in 1938 by Glenn Miller, the Glenn Miller Orchestra was arranged around a clarinet and tenor saxophone playing melody, while three other saxophones played the harmony. The band’s top ten hits included classics such asMoonlight Serenade, In the Mood, Tuxedo Junction, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Over the Rainbow, Blueberry Hill, That Old Black Magic, A String of Pearls, and (I've Got a Gal In) Kalamazoo. After Miller’s death in 1944, the band continued to tour and record. The present Glenn Miller Orchestra was formed in 1956 and has been touring consistently since, playing an average of 300 live dates a year all around the world. In 2003, Miller posthumously received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
