The Glenn Miller Orchestra Scandinavia, located in Stockholm, Sweden, started to operate July 1st 2010, with permission and authorization from Glenn Miller Productions, Inc., New York, U.S.A. Its band leader is Jan Slottenäs; former leader of a band under his own name. GMO, Scandinavia operates in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland.
GMO Scandinavia has access to Glenn Miller's library of approximately 1,500 musical arrangements. To Jan it is important to play each tune exactly as the composer/arranger meant it to be performed; "There is a kind of liberty in the solo parts although the soloists are always subordinate to the ensemble playing. It is also important to let the vocalists, who mostly sing the refrain, use their own personalities in their voices. At the same time, it is important that the listener experiences their voices as "one voice among all the others" in the orchestral arrangement." Jan´s opinion is that it´s up to the listener to speculate about how Glenn Miller might have developed his music. He promises the Glenn Miller fans to lead Glenn Miller Orchestra Scandinavia in a way that is recognizable to the audience.
