The Glenn Miller’s Orchestra

December 28, 2009

It is strange but the most of my posts are about music. Well, may be for these last several months this is something that bothers me. Too many new emotions actually…

So, it goes about something absolutely new for me here. Have you ever thought what actually the true American culture is made of? You would probably say, well… Broadway, Musicales, Hollywood, Britney Spears (gosh..). Some geeks will mention Edgar Poe and O. Henry.

The last week I have discovered what the true American culture is for me. And it is The Glenn Millers Orchestra. Everything began when my father brought 2 tickets for their concert here in Sofia. The first question was – who is this? He said, well, they are very famous big band. I said – Jazz? He said – not exactly. They play Swing:) So I began to study the topic. I found it interesting. I finally got loved this music! I have read Glenn Milers biography and have seen a nice movie about his life. So I was totally ready for the show.

So, the big hall, 3000 people, everything is ready! The come and start to play. And of course it is the moonlight serenade! Just wonderful! Everybody is laughing, the atmosphere is just amazing! I was impressed by the way they behave themselves on stage. I have seen many events of that kind. In most cases, every step and every motion is subject of repetition and scenario. Especially on the Russian performances. Here it was just the opposite. Everything is just an improvisation. For example during the song, one of the musicians suddenly stands up goes to the front and plays an amazing solo. May be this is a script, but you don’t have this feeling, what makes it very pleasant.

During the performance there were not only music themes but also some very nice songs, performed by a gorgeous pretty lady. She had a very nice voice and a near to perfect figure. Nice dresses in style of the 40-es made everything look just magnificent! So I can say that this was a very nice present for Christmas for me.

The emotions are just fantastic!

And I think that that is what’s called a good music!
