Stan Kenton 1911-1979: A Tribute

With no disrespect intended to Take the "A" Train, One O'Clock Jump, or Let's Dance, fans of the Stan Kenton Orchestra recognize the Artistry in Rhythm audio track on this video tribute to him as THE anthem of big band Jazz. See if you can pick-out the 3-note "kicker" that drummer Gary Hobbs and conquero Ramon Lopez employ at the 1:15 mark.
