Stan Kenton's
Music Reflect s
Changing Mood
The strong, "fresh" sounds of
his elevated jazz interpret the
strong, changing, "dissonant"
mood of America today, Stan Ken-
ton said in an informal interview
"The youth of today in a world
of rcckets, planes, the atom bomb
and constant revolutionary chang-
es in values will not respond to
the previous stereotyped forms o
classic and dance music," said thi,
creator of the newest music t
come out of America. "They nee
the stimulation of the new ane
different sounds, which moderr
jazz must produce."
Kenton, who has created a
sens ;tional response with his
new interpretations, believes
that his jazz belongs to America
because it is direct and honest;
it is in tune with the "discord-
ant" times and reflects the
frank American movement to-
ward reality. The present trend
in this direction is shown by to-
day's Hollywood productions
with cut and dried glamour tak-
ing a back seat to realism and
frank characters.
The inventor of progressive jazz
went on to assert that the Ameri-
can people in this period of emo-
tional confusion are making
stronger demands on music as well
as on other aspects of life today.
They will not believe fantasy in
music because their emotions call
for truth of modern jazz.
"This elevated jazz is the be-
ginning of a new art which will
attain stronger appeal through-
out the next fifty years," expres-
sed Stan Kenton. He cited the
emotional appeal of his music
with the "coldness" of legiti-
mate music. His musicians do
not play cold written notes; they
project themselves into their
music. This is the essence of
"progressive jazz."
The Kenton troupe is now in
a transitional stage. They are
currently crusading their "differ-
ent" music as a dance band while
gradually striving for the original
Kenton goal of arrangement and
interpretation for concerts.
Stan Kenton organized his band
with the intention of recording his
arrangements and accompanying
them with miniature scores, thus
giving young musicians a chance
to work with his new ideas on
American music. He now hopes to
break away from dance band tra-
dition and work with his original
According to the National Cotton
Council, the word "bath" comes
from a Greek word meaning 'to
drive sadness from the mind."
