03/08/19 - NNHS Newsletter - In the Mood

Any art communicates what you're in the mood to receive.

- Larry Rivers
(17 Aug 1923 - 14 Aug 2002)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   I'm in the mood for some big band sounds.

BONUS - In the Mood - Tex Beneke and the Glenn Miller Orchestra, 1946


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_the_Mood:

"In the Mood" is a song popularized by the American bandleader Glenn Miller in 1939, and one of the best-known arrangements of the big band era. Miller's rendition topped the charts one year later and was featured in the 1941 movie Sun Valley Serenade... The song was composed by Joe Garland and Andy Razaf, and arranged by Glenn Miller.[1] The main theme previously appeared under the title of "Tar Paper Stomp", credited to jazz trumpeter/bandleader Wingy Manone, who recorded it several times in 1929 and 1930. A story says that after "In the Mood" became a hit, Manone was paid by Miller and his record company not to contest the copyright.
