Ok, this may not be the best forum to ask this, but I think I can find lots of Jane's WWII Fighter's enthusiasts here too.



Do any of you know the names, or where I can get the whole list of jazz songs that play in that "museum" ???

the 2 best ones are exactly the ones I don't know.



thanks!!

I don't have all of those, but I've taken that feel to FB by changing the menu marches with Glenn Miller's Band hits. The "Song of the Volga boatmen" fits really in the Russian side! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Isn't Duke Ellingtons band most popularly associated with 'Take the A Train'?

The songs credits go to Billy Strayhorn (pianist, arranger, composer), who joined the band in 1939.

Apparently he and Ellington worked so closely on pieces that at times they had difficulty remembering who had written what.

b.t.w. Ellington toured Britain in 1933, 1939 and 1948

As far as I am led to believe his music was very popular in Britain before, during and after World War Two.

As an example, another one of Ellingtons hits 'It don't mean a thing (if it ain't got that swing)' spawned an RAF catchphrase during that period: "It don't mean a thing if you don't pull that ring"

~ to remind pilots to pull on their parachutes release cord D rings (upon bailing out)!

Pedro,
Why don't you ask the question at; http://janesww2fighters.net
It is quite likely that the friendly crew over there might be able to help.
