Previous EpisodeMarch 10, 2020Next Episode

This is the third and final episode in my series on big band leaders. The first one was about female band leaders. The second was about African Americans. In this episode, you'll hear five songs by white big band leaders. The songs are "Night Wind" by Benny Goodman and his Orchestra, "No Strings (I'm Fancy Free)" by The Dorsey Brothers Orchestra, "Little Brown Jug" by Glenn Miller and his Orchestra, "Gravedigger's Holiday" by Les Brown and His Band of Renown, and "I Ask the Stars (And They Agree)" by Artie Shaw and his Orchestra.
