We Salute Glen Miller

The band has started working on a new chart, Salute to Glen Miller II, arranged by Jest Hest and published by Warner Brothers. The chart contains three great tunes. The tribute begins with the traditional sax section soli and the memorable Bobby Hackett trumpet solo in "String of Pearls". Next is a ticket on the ever popular "Chatanooga Choo Choo", and then it closes with the powerful "American Patrol".

Since we are blessed with two very talented singers, Anne and Solveig, we will be adding a couple of choruses wherever possible. We call this technique SVT (Standard Vocal Treatment).

We get a lot of our charts from Marina Music, located in Seattle, Washington. They have a huge selection of charts on their website.
