Adrian Cunningham is an award winning multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and world traveller. Originally from Sydney Australia and now based in New York, he is proving to be one of his country’s top exports. With fluent command of the saxophones, clarinet, and flute, he is one of the finest multi-instrumentalists in Jazz. Proof of this is in the company he keeps, having recently recorded with Jazz luminaries Jeff Hamilton, John Clayton, and Ted Rosenthal with his latest recording Jazz Speak (Arbors), which broke the top 20 in the US national Jazz charts.

PLUS! ON SCREEN!
SUN VALLEY SERENADE
PRESENTED IN STEREO SOUND.

Sonja Henie, John Payne, Glenn Miller and His Orchestra, Milton Berle, Lynn Bari, Joan Davis, Dorothy Dandridge, The Nicholas Brothers. Glenn Miller is featured in 4 song classics : “It Happened in Sun Valley,” “In the Mood,” “Chattanooga Choo-Choo,” “I Know Why” (And So Do You).
While Miller had appeared in an earlier movie (The Big Broadcast of 1936, 1935) and a musical short, this was the first feature film to showcase the Glenn Miller Orchestra and to use Miller as such an integral part of the narrative. It was a big deal and a huge draw to audiences, as the Glenn Miller Orchestra was the number one band in America at the time.
This is the movie that introduced the song “Chattanooga Choo-Choo,” which went on to become the first record to be certified gold, with sales of 1.2 million. Written by Mack Gordon and Harry Warren, it garnered an Oscar nomination for Best Song (though it lost to “The Last Time I Saw Paris” from Lady Be Good [1941]), and became one of the best-loved songs of its era. What’s more, it’s performed in the film by Dorothy Dandridge and the Nicholas Brothers in a show-stopping routine.
