This collection covers the early years of an incredibly influential bandleader, one who valued change and innovation over chart success, and whose music leads us to Modern Jazz, always pushing and testing the boundaries of what constitutes the very definition of Jazz Music. On many tracks Kenton's band is fronted by female vocalists of the highest calibre including Anita O'Day and June Christy.
