"I happened to check this CD out of our local public library after attending a Glen Miller concert at the Pensacola Naval Aviation Museum. As a musician and music critic, I've listened to many Glen Miller recordings and none compare with the highly polished and classy style in Ray Anthony's arrangements of GM (there are two volumes). Unlike some of the authentic Gm recordings, the Ray Anthony Orchestra has produced high quality recordings with various band parts that are detailed and clear (which musicians love!). This particular recording really grows on you; I didn't take it out of my CD changer for two months. It's appropriate for quiet listening but at the same time is jazzy enough to put you in a dancing mood. It's definitely a moral booster and tension relaxer. My sister, who is also a GM fan (and owns many more recordings than I) happened to hear me playing it and demanded to know where to buy it so she could get herself a copy! Enough said!"
