Jazz Appreciation Group – June Meeting – Stan Kenton

Thanks to Keith for introducing us to the career and music of Stan Kenton.

Some of the tracks played included Stan Kenton’s theme song “Artistry Jumps” from 1945, “Intermission Riff” of 1946, “Peanut Vendor” from 1947, and the more recent “Every time we say goodbye” from 1955 with June Christy sounding amazingly like Ella.

As I had just returned from a week in Kent the day before, Avril kindly made and brought two excellent cakes to go with our coffee.
