Stan Kenton and His Orchestra: A Kenton Trilogy, Part 1: Dance Time

Read "A Kenton Trilogy, Part 1: Dance Time" reviewed by Jack Bowers


Better late than never. Having already appraised Part 2 of Sounds of Yesteryear's three-part salute to the Stan Kenton Orchestra, it seemed only proper that the same should be done (albeit out of order) for Part 1 (and Part 3 as well, whenever it is released). Unlike Part 2, which is devoted to the artistry of ...

Bird's Trumpets

Read "Bird's Trumpets" reviewed by Matt Lavelle

As challenging as the trumpet is to play, playing Bebop raised the technical bar. Playing with Charlie Parker at fast ...

Kurt Jarnberg: Down Memory Lane, Vols 3 and 4

Read "Down Memory Lane, Vols 3 and 4" reviewed by Jack Bowers


For some of us, Memory Lane is much longer and far more crowded than it once was. Be that as it may, any trip there remains a pleasurable experience, more so when the guide is Swedish trombonist / trumpeter Kurt Jarnberg who employs his quartet, quintet, big band and a host of talented guest artists to ...

Rolf Ericson & American Stars

If you check the personnel of Charlie Barnet's band in 1949—the killer one with arrangements by Bobby Sherwood, Manny Albam, Pete Rugolo, Gil Fuller, Dave Matthews and Johnny Richards—you'll find a guy named Rolf Ericson in the trumpet section. Ericson sat next to horn players such as Maynard Ferguson, Lammar Wright, Doc Severinsen, Ray Wetzel and ...

Stan Kenton Orchestra / DePaul University Jazz EnsembleDouble Feature, Vol. 1Tantara Productions2010 Some of us are old enough to remember double features, but they were in movie theatres, not concert halls or recording studios, and, as memory serves, were never quite as enchanting or memorable as this ...
