In the Mood: Songs of the Great Band Leaders
January 22 - February 21
In the 1930s, Americans went wild for the swing music craze, and Big Band leaders such as Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw and Tommy Dorsey took the reins of the music industry, setting the course of American popular music for over a decade. Whether it be sweet or hot, tunes such as “It Don’t Mean a Thing,” “Star Dust,” “Route 66” and “Tuxedo Junction” made stars of vocalists like Louis Armstrong, Rosemary Clooney and Ella Fitzgerald, and they still keep people swinging today.
