NTSC/Region 0. The pairing of Stan Kenton (in a 19s performance) and Benny Golson (filmed in 1966) on this DVD might seem strange. However, all of the music heard on this DVD has a certain unity of conception, for all tracks are performed by big bands in which the arrangements seem if not more, at least in equal importance to the improvised solos. That's of course one of the characteristics of the Stan Kenton sound, which put emphasis on jazz composition and featured such noted composers and arrangers as Pete Retool, Bill Russo, Gerry Mulligan and Shorty Rogers. Benny Golson, on the other hand, is not featured as performer on the set included here, but as composer, arranger and conductor, leading a group labeled as the British Orchestra. As a bonus, we have added three more tunes by Stan Kenton taken from a 1971 TV show. Oh!vation.

This show confirms Stan Kenton as the most innovative writer, arranger, band leader and person to bring in great writers and arrangers for showcasing talent ever! No one close.
