Musical style

Throughout the history of the Airmen of Note, the Glenn Miller sound has remained a central ingredient in the band's musical heritage. The band adoptd a more contemporary sound in the 1950s and 1960s due largely to staff arrangers, including Sammy Nestico. Over the past four decades, Mike Crotty and Alan Baylock have continued the band's commitment to tradition and innovation. To augment its writing staff, the Airmen of Note has commissioned works by Bob Florence, Bob Mintzer, Rob McConnell, and Bill Holman. Sammy Nestico and former band member Tommy Newsom have composed works for the group.[6][7]
