Description
These 1941 radio transcriptions document some of the earliest recordings of the Stan Kenton band, and in good sound too. Many of the 26 songs were not recorded commercially. In addition to the title track, highlights include "A Little Jive Is Good for You," "Tribute to a Flattened Fifth," "Old Black Joe," "Moon Mist," "La Cumparsita," "Reed Rapture," "Don't Want That Woman Around," "Deep River," "Blues in Asia Minor," and "Two Guitars."

"[These recordings] show the Kenton sound already partially in place, the trademark staccato sax section punctuating the line, the brasses just starting to blast. Even at this point, you cannot mistake this band for anyone else's…. There are also a few previews of Kenton-penned recordings to come: the Kenton theme 'Artistry in Rhythm' (which he pilfered from Ravel's 'Daphnis and Chloe'), the jumping 'Harlem Folk Dance,' and the sublime 'Opus in Pastels.'… Chico Alvarez's trumpet can be heard in several solo spots, and Howard Rumsey's scatted loosey-goosey bass solo feature, 'A Setting in Motion' (which Decca recorded under the title 'Concerto for Doghouse'), is a kick."—All Music Guide
