In the Mood 

In the Mood is a brash, rootin'-tootin' tribute to the Big Band sound that dominated American airwaves, dance floors and popular culture during the 1940s. Too cool for that? Get over yourself; this is the music that helped get countless people -- Americans, Europeans, combatants and civilians alike -- through history's largest-scale war. Respect is due. The extravagantly staged homage to the music of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, the Andrews Sisters and others, is replete with a real-life big band along with a battery of singer-dancers flashing period costume and choreography. It's immodest, brassy, exuberant -- and over here.
