Big Band Jazz: Viva Kenton! and Cuban Fire on July 29th
It's the Latin side of Stan Kenton's band this Sunday, June 29th, 7 to 8 pm on Big Band Jazz with Bob Craig.
Starting in the mid 1940s with "Tampico" and "Peanut Vendor" and with albums like Cuban Fire and Viva Kenton, this sound became a favorite with his fans. Also featured: a few alumni from the band that went on to form their own groups - guys like Pete Rugolo, Maynard Ferguson, and Bill Holman.
