Description by

One of the most controversial musicians in jazz during his lifetime, bandleader Stan Kenton (1911-1979) has become something of a cult figure, and is now justly considered as one of the men who renovated the big-band idiom during the forties and fifties. This DVD showcases different clips featuring the great Kenton Orchestra of the 1940s, playing hits such as Eager Beaver, Tampico, or Artistry In Rhythm. The DVD is completed with an interesting selection of soundies from other 'modern' big bands of the day, headed by Charlie Barnet, Les Brown and Claude Thornhill.

Product Description:

Compiling clips from a variety of sources, this tribute to jazz bandleader Stan Keaton offers a precise summation of his many talents. Having fully overhauled conventional big band practices, Kenton is regarded as an innovator who took giant steps within the jazz world. Much of the footage featured here is taken from the Kenton Orchestra era of the 1940s, providing a fascinating historical document of a bygone era for the genre.
