Sketches On Standards - Stan Kenton
Sketches On Standards
Capitol T 426
Available from digital vendors so I will not be posting a sample. However, I wanted to share the cover art on this reissue.
Originally release in 1953, the creative big band arrangements sound progressive compared to most period albums I've listened to. More of the "good stuff" from Kenton.
