Music For D-Day

Miller over-rehearsed? Maybe that's how you get perfection.

 What does America sound like? Like the music that got us through the Great Depression and WWII.

How did the greatest generation become the greatest? It might have to do with this music. You can't resist this vibrant, sassy and compelling activity. Such in-your-face confidence. 

Plus you could jitterbug your blues away.

June 6, 1944
