At Last is a 1941 song written by Mack Gordon and Harry Warren for the musical film Orchestra Wives. It was recorded by Glenn Miller and His Orchestra in 1942 and reached number 9 on the Billboard pop charts in 1942, staying in the charts for 9 weeks, and has subsequently become a standard. This version is particularly ‘Gershwinesque’, adding elements of that composer’s second piano prelude.

Flying Home is a jazz composition written by Benny Goodman, Eddie DeLange, and Lionel Hampton, with lyrics by Sid Robin. It was supposedly developed from a tune whistled by Hampton as he nervously waited for his first flight on an aircraft. The most famous version of the tune is the 1942 recording by Lionel Hampton and His Orchestra.

This vibraphone feature was put together for Daniel Floyd of the Central Band of the Royal Air Force.
