Max Frank Music is excited to announce the release of Terry Vosbein’s latest explorations into the big band world, Progressive Jazz 2009. Combining unknown titles from the library of Stan Kenton with bold original sounds from the pen of Vosbein, this CD packs 78 minutes of must-hear music.
“Progressive Jazz in the best sense of the word: advanced, forward-moving and enlightening but in no way pretentious or self-absorbed,” according to reviewer Jack Bowers at All About Jazz. The Knoxville Jazz Orchestra is “remarkably accomplished, and takes to these demanding charts like ducks to water.”
Guest conductor Vosbein takes the band through their paces on seven never previously recorded compositions and arrangements written for Kenton by Pete Rugolo and Bob Graettinger. Add to the mix Vosbein’s own six contributions from sixty years later and you have a baker’s dozen of tasty delights.
