At one time I had an RCA Victor 78 of Tex Beneke and the Miller Orchestra.It was "Stormy Weather"
backed with "Body and Soul".It was nice record.Sometime back,I found Tex Beneke/Miller Orchestra
78 of "Sunrise Serenade" and it was just great.It showed that Beneke was good jazz ballad player.It
thought his up-tempo verged in the  corny side.I wonder if Mancini did the reorchestrating of the original
Miller 1939 Bluebird.I never heard the MGM recordings of that band.The only other Beneke/Miller 78
I have is the theme f rom the 1946 film "Strange Love of Martha Ivers".I think it was just called "Strange
Love".I'd be interested in knowing if there are other LPs out there of the Beneke/Miller Orchestra.Are
there any current CDs of that band.
