It was during the period covered by this Hindsight recording that Stan Kenton caught on and became a household name. These radio performances mostly feature arrangements by Pete Rugolo and Gene Roland although Boots Mussulli contributed a memorable rendition of "I Surrender Dear" and Kenton himself wrote the chart for "Begin the Beguine." Singer June Christy, tenor Vido Musso, trombonist Kai Winding, trumpeter Buddy Childers are the main stars but it is the ensembles and the distinctive arrangements that gave this edition of the Stan Kenton Orchestra its own personality. All of the well-recorded sets in this valuable Hindsight series are recommended to Kenton fans. ~ Scott Yanow
