‘Stan Kenton’s legacy is in good hands… The music takes on new life and new meaning, as it should, to keep Stan’s music alive and perpetuate the roots of American jazz history. Altogether, the ensemble and soloist work on the CD exhibits the band’s love and respect for the man who brought us his own unique approach to jazz’. -Sammy Nestico
