Editorial Reviews

In recognition of the upcoming 100th birthday celebration of
Stan Kenton in 2011, this documentary by award-winning
jazz filmmaker Graham Carter covers all facets of Kenton s
amazing career and includes much of the groundbreaking
music that was performed by the Stan Kenton Orchestra
over the years.
Stan Kenton is acknowledged as one of the pioneers in
developing contemporary big band jazz, with a career as
bandleader starting in the early 1940s and lasting through
the late 1970s. Kenton was responsible for helping bring
many jazz stars to fame, including June Christy, Maynard
Ferguson, and Lee Konitz. Many great arrangers wrote for
the Kenton band including Bill Holman, Bill Russo, Lennie
Niehaus, Gerry Mulligan, and Pete Rugolo. Kenton was one of
the pioneers of integrating Afro-Cuban rhythms with big band
jazz, and was at the forefront of introducing jazz education to
colleges and high schools throughout the world.
Documentary on big band jazz legend Stan Kenton.
Interviews with over 20 people associated with Kenton s
long and successful career.
Hundreds of images from the Kenton archives.
Rare film and television performances by the Stan
Kenton Orchestra.
