Big Band Arrangements
In every time there are men whose special role it is to give expression
to the spirit of their day. They become its symbols, each in his
own field of art. Stan Kenton is such a man, the symbol of a vibrant
world that finds its voice today in jazz. His story is, in many
ways, the story of modern jazz, and this musical era is his. Much
of the era is revealed in a portrait of the man, where he came
from, what he felt...
I created a special Maynard Ferguson CD containg some rare recordings such as "All The Things You Are", "Ill Wind", "Gloomy Sunday",
"Be Bop Spoken Here" with Charlie Barnet + Radio Transcriptions.
