In the Mood

This is my cover of “In the Mood“, a popular big band-era jazz standard recorded by American bandleader Glenn Miller. A No. 1 hit, it topped the charts for 13 straight weeks in 1940 in the U.S.

My version is based on the Shadow’s version from their 1964 album “Dance With the Shadows”.
