American Patrol, Vol. 1

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
The appropriately named Avid record label has released more than 35 Glenn Miller compilations. Avid specializes in Miller's wartime radio broadcasts; American Patrol, Vol. 1, issued in 1996, contains 45 performances retrieved from airchecks of programs transmitted to armed forces personnel between March 10 and May 26, 1944. Sponsored and supervised by the Office of War Information, these Music from America shows were useful for boosting morale and winning the war. Miller's band invariably ran like a well-oiled machine. Vocals were by Johnny Desmond & the Crew Chiefs. As Miller was on leave during the broadcast of May 26, 1944, his ensemble operated under the ...

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
The appropriately named Avid record label has released more than 35 Glenn Miller compilations. Avid specializes in Miller's wartime radio broadcasts; American Patrol, Vol. 1, issued in 1996, contains 45 performances retrieved from airchecks of programs transmitted to armed forces personnel between March 10 and May 26, 1944. Sponsored and supervised by the Office of War Information, these Music from America shows were useful for boosting morale and winning the war. Miller's band invariably ran like a well-oiled machine. Vocals were by Johnny Desmond & the Crew Chiefs. As Miller was on leave during the broadcast of May 26, 1944, his ensemble operated under the leadership of Jerry Gray. This is wholesome all-American big-band pop music with strong undercurrents of jazz and occasional sugary interludes from a string section. Repertoire ranged from novelties, smooth ballads, and slow dance tunes to authentic swing standards like Fats Waller's "Honeysuckle Rose" and "Stealin' Apples"; Erskine Hawkins' "Tuxedo Junction," Lionel Hampton's "Flying Home," and Edgar Sampson's "Stompin' at the Savoy." There's also a smart rendition of "Farewell Blues," introduced more than 20 years earlier by the New Orleans Rhythm Kings. As far as Glenn Miller compilations go, this double CD is a good choice. It contains several of Miller's biggest hits -- "String of Pearls," "Anvil Chorus," and "American Patrol" -- but does not include Miller's cover of Joe Garland's "In the Mood."
