Overview

The Stan Kenton Orchestra of the 1970s featured high-level musicianship, dramatic arrangements, forceful ensembles and workmanlike solos. The 19-piece band heard on this album is mostly filled with forgotten youngsters; the exceptions are veteran saxophonist Willie Maiden, trombonist Dick Shearer and the then-unknown drummer Peter Erskine. The arrangements are by Hank Levy, Bill Holman (one of his two is "Happy Birthday to You") and Maiden. Well-played and sometimes exciting, this music is rarely memorable.
