Muze PNote Arranger: Lennie Niehaus.
Muze PNote THE STAGE DOOR SWINGS showcases Stan Kenton using the range and power of his big band to interpret 12 Broadway hits. Listeners might assume that a "Broadway Hits" set would find Kenton scaling back his usual progressive tendencies, but that is not the case. The arrangements by Lennie Niehaus are ambitious and at times grandiose, utilizing the full force of the 18-piece group.
Muze PNote The set includes such familiar gems as Cole Porter's "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye," Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Bali Ha'i," and Adler and Ross's "Whatever Lola Wants." There are several fine soloists, including Neihaus himself on alto sax on "Baubles, Bangles, and Beads" and "Hey There." As usual, Kenton manages music that is harmonically advanced yet also highly melodic and swinging, making this a fine set for fans of Broadway musicals, big-band swing, and challenging large-ensemble arrangements.

Producer: Lee Gillette; Lee Gillette; Michael Cuscuna (Reissue)
