CD Reviews

Not true to orginial music. Sounded off key and distracted.
Bill _ palverde@i1.net | Missouri | 04/28/1999
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Sounded to me like a pickup band from the local musicians union. I know that a lot of the musicians connected with the band were individual stars and performers in their own right. The performance did not follow along from the orginial book. The orginial recordings dating from 1952 were crisp and even when these selections were heard in person they did not deviate from the orginial. I was disappointed that they were not true. The trombone section sounded off key with every one trying to lead. This was a signature of the band and, I am afraid it missed the mark. Now, I know why there was no Ghost Band after his death."
This is NOT the Kenton band!

"This is the Kenton Alumni Band and others from a celebration and conference held on May 30 to June 2, 1991. Some of the sounds were not too good, but some good stuff too. The Kenton discipline is certainly not there, but what can you expect."
