Overview

The second of three double CDs in this series has a disc from Stan Kenton's 1961 Mellophonium Orchestra (heard during two different engagements) and a concert from the University of North Texas Neophonic Orchestra under the direction of Leon Breeden in 1966. Ironically the Kenton performances are mostly of standards and are concise while the Neophonic Orchestra performs very adventurous third stream charts by the likes of John Williams, Bob Florence, Allyn Ferguson, Marty Paich, and Van Alexander. The two sets are complementary. Key soloists with Kenton are trumpeter Marvin Stamm, trombonist Bob Fitzpatrick, altoist Gabe Baltazar, and Sam Donahue or Buddy Arnold on tenor while the Neophonic Orchestra has few names anyone will recognize other than trumpeter Bill Stapleton, drummer Ed Soph, and Billy Harper on tenor. The stirring music will greatly interest Stan Kenton collectors.
