Stan Kenton - The Innovations in Modern Music Orchestra

"Maybe even Stan sensed that this was the nearest he would ever come to leading a permanently-organized, full-fledged concert orchestra, playing America's finest auditoriums and concert halls, and performing a new, exciting and original form of progressive American music."
- Michael Sparke

The editorial staff at JazzProfiles wanted to compliment and complement Michael Sparke's piece on Stan Kenton's Innovations in Modern Music Orchestra [1950-1951] which is currently featured on the columnar side of the site with the following video tribute which uses a combined audio track of Stan's Artistry in Rhythm that segues into Trajectories at 0:55 by Franklyn Marks.
