30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 8 - Glenn Miller Orchestra: In the Christmas Mood

Another fun genre of music comes from the Big Band/Swing era.  Benny Goodman, the Andrews Sisters, Jimmy Dorsey, and others are all fabulous, but perhaps most iconic of such music is Benny Goodman.

In the Christmas Mood is a great album put together by the Glenn Miller Orchestra.  From the fun opening number of "Sleigh Ride" to "Frosty the Snowman," from a couple sacred medleys, to "Silent Night," the fun energy of the brass and woodwinds of this orchestra is sure to please, and put you in the Christmas Mood!
