Written by Super User. Posted in Reviews from issues of Journal Into Melody during The orchestration was actually by Percy Fletcher, and they are described as possessing an unmistakable "Englishness".

Still, this is a minor quibble given the excellent performances, sound engineering and generous playing time; and this splendid disc is certainly deserving of the widest possible support — and what better Christmas present could you possibly give yourself!

I doubt if anyone involved — the proprietors of GUILD, together with David Ades and Alan Bunting — could have Taken - Linda Perry - In Flight that the series would be the unparalleled success which it certainly has become.

Much less that init would reach its hundredth edition! And yet here we are, and I have been given the honour of reviewing these two new releases. The CD contains 24 tracks, neatly divided into three sections of eight, each representing one of the three orchestras.

The recording dates range from towith three of the tracks being in stereo. Originally a clarinet player, he began studying arranging I Surrender All - Disco Saints - Cosmic Cowboy recuperating from a near-fatal train crash, and eventually became chief arranger for Tommy Dorsey.

The dates range from towith five of the tracks being in stereo. As a final bonus, on track 25, Paul Weston talks about his Jerome Kern recordings which were made for a special promotional feature album for Columbia. This recording was kindly supplied Solitaire (a) - Dennis Farnon - Pictures From A Life our good friend Kevin Stapylton in Australia. As I have remarked before in these reviews, I find myself running out of superlatives!

A Glorious Century of Light Music. There is a good mixture of great orchestral arrangements of popular favourites, together with some excellent library pieces — in short, something for everyone. I have not come across any other orchestral compositions by him, but they may exist. The total tally of tracks so far is in excess of ; I understand that there is plenty more material in the pipeline waiting to be released, and I would like to wish this wonderful series continued success.

This tribute CD is available only from Evergreen magazine and complements a detailed article they published in their autumn issue. He appeared on several post-war radio programmes of his own and was also associated with Grand Hotel and Scarborough where Solitaire (a) - Dennis Farnon - Pictures From A Life was resident for 25 years. Some of the tracks are with his trio of Jack Byfield and Reginald Kilbey and some with a full orchestra. All are most tuneful and enjoyable with the titles speaking for themselves.

A CD copy did not arrive in time for me to listen to but the aforementioned Guide opined that "Each offers excellent sound and varied and imaginative arrangements. There is audience applause on some of the tracks, but this is not intrusive. This is a nicely balanced collection of traditional and more modern music that makes a welcome addition to the light music repertoire.

I would have been happy with purely orchestral versions. There are ten packed pages of notes in minuscule print. Williams is easily the most successful composer working in film today.

This collection contains his personal favorites, chosen from film Solitaire (a) - Dennis Farnon - Pictures From A Life television music as well as concert works and festive Solitaire (a) - Dennis Farnon - Pictures From A Life pieces, and includes for me, at least some "discoveries" among his lesser-known works. No writer was better than Rugolo at blending the formal, classical aspects of Innovations with the sprit and excitement of big band jazz. On Faithless - Matt Cardle - Letters Road, the dark, brooding mood of the introduction contrasts vividly with the up-tempo middle section and its exhilarating trumpet flights.

Every now and again you know Maynard Ferguson is among the personnel. Solitaire (a) - Dennis Farnon - Pictures From A Life the star is Christy, who suppresses the sexuality in her voice in favor of a classical purity of tone that is in perfect keeping with Rugolo's intentions, and almost resembles an instrumental solo.

June was faultless in this very demanding role, the finest partnership of voice and orchestra that Kenton could ever have hoped to achieve.

Like his teacher Joseph Schillinger, Marks was dedicated to breaking down the traditional restrictions of classical music and he and Stan became good friends. In Marks told me he considered working for Kenton "very gratifying, and some of my best writing came out of that, but it did not make me a living.

By means of Latin rhythms and pizzicato strings, Trajectories depicts the composer's impressions as he watches a galaxy of falling stars, culminating in a fantasy as the entire heavens break loose, an experience Franklyn finds fascinating and spectacular, and in no way threatening. Marks makes exemplary use of the orchestra's wide range, with especially accomplished writing for strings and woodwinds. The restlessness and constantly changing rhythmic patterns of Trajectories are an original concept unlike that of any other Kenton composer.

Graettinger differs from Stan's other composers, who despite all the dissonance and modernity in their writing, display a sense of order and symmetry, which Graettinger spurns. Bob's work lacks a sequential pattern and regularity, is deliberately asymmetrical, making it at once more difficult to comprehend, and yet potentially more rewarding in its very unpredictability. Despite the lively theme and jaunty tempo, the atmosphere of "Incident" is never lightweight or frivolous, due to the atonal nature of Graettinger's challengingly complex orchestration.

Like many of Bob's pieces, the work ends on a surprisingly tranquil note, in marked contrast to the preceding orchestral counterpoint and dissonance. Stan's interest in fusing Afro-Cuban rhythms with Solitaire (a) - Dennis Farnon - Pictures From A Life band jazz never wavered, and authenticity is assured in Cuban-born Chco O'Farrill's feature for the conga drums and fiery vocals of Carlos Vidal.

Originally titled more effectively as "Cuban Fantasy," Cuban Episode is a multi-tempoed creation that unites exotic Latin rhythms with the incisive Kenton brass, in a passionate combination of the two cultures.

Exotic sounds of the Orient are sensitively explored via a bolero beat in Franklyn Marks' melodic Evening In Pakistan or Kenton in Karachi as one wag termed it. The birth of a new dawn in a mysterious world of half-seen minarets and mosques is conjured up during the long and lovely introduction. After a lone trombone calls the faithful to prayer, the hypnotic rhythms accelerate to induce the white heat of the shimmering, mid-day sun, until Roll over Beethoven/Whola lotta shakin - Mountain - By The River the shadows lengthen, and the mystique of evening settles across Solitaire (a) - Dennis Farnon - Pictures From A Life land.

Note the extent to which the mood throughout is determined by Marks' fascinating employment of Solitaire (a) - Dennis Farnon - Pictures From A Life and finger-cymbals. Capitol's Innovations producer Jim Conkling sensed the possibility of a Ghost Of The Navigator - Iron Maiden - Brave New World single by replacing the atmospheric opening with a very simple introduction, grafted onto the main recording at the point where Bernhart's solo enters.

This truncated version was released first, the full recording not becoming available until the 12 inch LP of Stan Kenton Presents in Pete again demonstrates his command of the large orchestra, and his ability to compose the most compelling themes, in a stirring, emotionally-exciting flag-waver, that Stan often used as a concert-closer.

In Bill Russo's opinion: "Pete Rugolo is the person I admire the most of those who wrote for the orchestra. Pete understood Stan's music perfectly, and was able to interpret Stan's requirements better than any of us. Rugolo understood things about Kenton even Kenton didn't understand!

Stan explained: "It isn't music, but an attempt to Solitaire (a) - Dennis Farnon - Pictures From A Life a holiday spirit. Some of them did - some of them Solitaire (a) - Dennis Farnon - Pictures From A Life - some of them couldn't!

Neal Hefti's In Veradero is a musical portrait, described via a lightly hypnotic Latin beat and exciting orchestral work, of a township south of the border. Less challenging than some of the more complicated scores, Hefti's tuneful melody and skillful arranging make it one of the most enjoyable, with the band humming effectively behind Bud Shank's nimble flute, and a beautiful tenor solo by the underrated Bob Cooper. He actually called it "An Expression From Rogers," but producer Jim Conkling persuaded Kenton a more catchy title would sell better on records, and Rogers subsequently gave his house and boat the same name.

Shorty's first score for Stan is full-frontal bebop, an exuberant explosion of swinging jazz. Rugolo's artful Blues In Riff employs a more relaxed, rhythmic beat than hitherto, and both charts serve to introduce the "cool" concept of playing into the band's vocabulary, via the restrained solo stylings of Art Pepper, Bob Cooper, and Shorty Rogers.

I am convinced no other percussion player could have switched so effectively from his pivotal position on the complex concert compositions, to his role as bebop jazz drummer on charts like Jolly Rogers and Blues In Riff, as the late, great Shelly Manne. As the tour progressed, from the number of compositions for cello that were commissioned, I have no doubt that Stan fell in love with the sound of the instrument and in particular the playing of his star soloist, Gregory Bemko.

When featuring a non-jazz instrument of this nature, played by a classical virtuoso, there is a Like Cancer - Illdisposed - The Prestige fine line between music that is virtually classical in conception and "light" music of an easy-listening category.

Almeida's Cello-logy brilliantly finds that middle ground, veering towards the classical rather than the benign, but never forsaking Kenton's roots via modern writing for the strings, especially the use of jazz rhythmic patterns and devices. Solitaire (a) - Dennis Farnon - Pictures From A Life told down beat: "Working with the Innovations band was one of my most valuable experiences. Stan and Pete Rugolo encouraged me to write, and the things I did were my first attempts to write for an orchestra on a larger scale.

Stan had me write a composition titled Art Pepper. Art did a magnificent job on the record of it, and he remains to this day one of our greatest jazz performers. Innovations was essentially a composers' workshop, and the arranger's role nearly always prevails over even the featured solo artists. Halls Of Brass is a tour-de-force for the Kenton horns, trumpets and trombones, one would imagine written by a trained and experienced composer, though Bill Russo is quick to point out that was not the case: "I was 22 when I wrote Halls Of Brass, schooled only in the sense that I went to the library and read a lot, and with these enormous tools of this magnificent orchestra available to me.

I had not quite developed my compositional skills to the extent that I did later, and I think it extraordinary that I was able to do whatever I did. I mean, I refer to much of my music of that period as the sins of my youth. Halls Of Brass was very hard to play, and very hard to conduct, and I do think more highly of it than some of the others. Kenton disliked understatement, and valued musicians gifted with a Solitaire (a) - Dennis Farnon - Pictures From A Life which to some might seem to border on the excessive.
