“I am honored and excited to be invited to sing “Sentimental Journey” with The Glenn Miller Orchestra,” smiles Crystal Gayle. “I am a longtime fan of Glenn Miller and the big band era.”

“We are excited and pleased to present alongside Hindsight Records our new recording celebrating the 80th Anniversary of Glenn Miller’s Army Air Force Band,” shares Charles De Stefano, CEO of Glenn Miller Productions, Inc. “We are equally thrilled to have the wonderful Crystal Gayle join the Glenn Miller Orchestra on our recording of the great classic “Sentimental Journey.” We hope Glenn Miller Orchestra fans and Crystal’s fans around the world enjoy this new dynamic recording.”

Between 1939 and 1942, Glenn Miller led The Glenn Miller Orchestra, which became one of the most recognized names globally during the “Swing” era. Boasting an unmatched series of chart-topping records, The Glenn Miller Orchestra surpassed the sales of Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Jimmie Lunceford, Tommy Dorsey, and Harry James combined. Throughout three and a half years, Miller produced 16 chart-toppers and 72 top-ten hits, including a remarkable 31 in 1940 alone and earning the first-ever gold record for “Chattanooga Choo Choo.” Miller’s music not only defined the era of World War II but has endured as a timeless soundtrack, with bands carrying his legacy performing to enthusiastic crowds over the 80 years since his passing. Today, under the direction of Erik Stabnau, the current Glenn Miller Orchestra maintains a rigorous schedule, standing as one of the few full-time big bands still thriving in the contemporary music scene.

“Crystal Gayle and The Glenn Miller Orchestra are a natural together on “Sentimental Journey” – a trip back in time to revisit the sounds of the 1940s and the perfect introduction to The Glenn Miller Orchestra: 80th Anniversary Of The Army Air Force Band.” – Erik Stabnau – Music Director for The Glenn Miller Orchestra
