Stan Kenton Legacy Orchestra - Big Band #Jazz on Tour in Florida
Keeping alive Stan Kenton's love of creative
big band music and jazz education by
playing new music written in the style of the
Kenton Orchestra, as well as music written
while Stan was the band leader.
The Stan Kenton Legacy Orchestra is made up of musicians who played with Stan Kenton when he was alive, plus musicians who also played with Maynard Ferguson, Woody Herman, Count Basie and other "name" bands. The band comes together every year to tour all over the United States and also record live CD's from our tours. Most of our concerts are done in high schools, colleges and universities, in keeping with Stan Kenton's commitment to jazz education. Any school that books the band for an evening concert gets a FREE clinic in the afternoon.
