The big band of Glenn Miller (1904)
was the least "jazz" of all the white big bands of the swing era, but also the most successful, famous for such ballads as Frankie Carle's Sunrise Serenade (november 1938), Miller's own Moonlight Serenade (may 1939), and a spirited version of Joe Garland's In the Mood (august 1939).
Miller adapted classical music, folk tunes and movie soundtracks to the swinging rhythm.
Miller had pioneered his arrangements for clarinet and four saxophones while arranging music for Ray Noble.
Tenor saxophonist Timothy "Tex" Beneke was a staple of the band from inception (1937) till the end (1942).
Miller died in 1944.
