Notes and Editorial Reviews

Falling in Love With Glenn Miller is part of RCA's mid-line Falling in Love With series, which focuses on romantic highlights from classic big-band, swing, and jazz artists. There aren't any risky choices on Miller's volume, but that's fine, since each of the title's 16 cuts -- including "Stardust," "Sunrise Serenade," "Moonlight Serenade," "Dearly Beloved," "That Old Black Magic," "The Nearness of You," and "Moonlight Becomes You" -- sustains a mellow, romantic mood. This record may not really be necessary, but for anyone looking for lovely, romantic music from Miller, it's not a bad choice at all.
