Dear Steve,
No mention in your Ray Noble biog of the oft-repeated opinion that Glenn
Miller 'borrowed' the mid 1930s Ray Noble Orchestra reed-section lead
'sound' for his now-famous 1938-44 orchestra.
As opposed to the version in the film 'The Glen Miller Story' where (as I
recall) the trumpet player hurt his lip at the all-important first
Kind regards,
PS: Just received another bundled batch of four emails from you, all
different dates and times and going back to 5 April.
Very strange!
