ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A Truly Historic Release From Tantara!!

The Neophonic movement, launched in the mid-sixties, was another grand STAN KENTON adventure. This one had the ultimate goal of establishing contemporary resident jazz orchestras in major cities across the United States and even around the globe. The prototype orchestra, The Los Angeles Neophonic, played eleven concerts over three seasons, but funding support disappeared and the band dissolved in 1968. Critic William Grim wrote: \"undoubtedly one of the most important experiments in the history of modern jazz.\"

Fortunately the first and third performances from the inaugural 1965 L.A. Neophonic season were expertly recorded and are presented in Tantara’s two doubledisc volume NEW HORIZONS release. • \"Geniuses At Work\" would be an appropriate sub-title for this release due to the many extremely talented composers on board.

• Included is Stan Kenton’s last major composition,
a tour-de-force titled \"OPUS FOR TYMPANI\"
• Eleven world premiere performances!
• Engaging liner notes from two highly respected
Kentonia writers.
• Previously unpublished photos
• Ten selections originally written for the regular
Stan Kenton Orchestra.
• All tracks in Glorious Stereo!
• AN ALL-STAR CAST OF COMPOSERS AND MUSICIANS, INCLUDING
MANY LONG-ASSOCIATED WITH THE KENTON ORCHESTRA

Pete Rugolo, Marty Paich, Johnny RIchards, Bill Holman,
Shorty Rogers, Dee Barton, Ralph Carmichael,
Laurindo Almeida, Shelly Manne, John Worster, Conte Candoli,
Dalton Smith, Al Porcino, Milt Bernhart, Bob Fitzpatrick, Frank Rosolino, JIm Amlotte, Bud Shank, BIll Perkins, Jack Nimitz
