Description

Big Band Tribute sees Dan Price and Barry Forgie collaborate as arranger and editor to create 21st century antiphonal settings of two big band classics.

American Patrol started life as a march by American composer and arranger Frank White Meacham in 1885. However, Jerry Gray introduced it into the big band repertoire when he arranged the march for Glenn Miller's swing band in 1941.

In the Mood was composed by Joseph Manone, but again it was Glenn Miller and his swing band who brought the chart to prominence in the big band era when their recording topped the US Hit Parade for 13 straight weeks in 1940.

Big Band Tribute has been recorded by Grimethorpe Colliery Band on their CD 'Grimethorpe Entertain' available to buy here.
