Little Brown Jug

Glenn Miller Band

To carry on the theme of WW II from my post earlier in the week   of the D-Day reenactment, I decided to use  Little Brown Jug as my Music Monday.   You can click on the other titles listed below if you would like to hear more of the bands’ toe-tapping tunes!

Alton Glenn Miller (March 1, 1904 – missing in action December 15, 1944)[1] was an American big band musician, arranger, composer, and bandleader in the swing era. He was the best-selling recording artist from 1939 to 1943, leading one of the best known big bands. Miller’s recordings include “In the Mood“, “Moonlight Serenade“, “Pennsylvania 6-5000“, “Chattanooga Choo Choo“, “A String of Pearls“, “At Last“, “(I’ve Got a Gal In) Kalamazoo“, “American Patrol“, “Tuxedo Junction“, “Elmer’s Tune“, and “Little Brown Jug“.[2] While he was traveling to entertain U.S. troops in France during World War II, Glenn Miller’s aircraft disappeared in bad weather over the English Channel. It is feared that his plane was mistakenly hit by Allied planes returning from a mission.
