Stan Kenton - This Is an Orchestra!


345 pgs.
University of North Texas Press, Publ.

Michael Sparke's biography sums up the mesmerizing bandleader at the height of his powers. Sparke provides a lucid account of the evolution of the Kenton Sound, and the first book to offer a critical evaluation of the role that Stan played in its creation. Insightful and thought-provoking throughout, and supported by liberal quotes from the musicians who made the magic.
