kenton 1962 - Jazz Scene USA

Postby ken k » Mon Aug 20, 2007 10:24 am

Found some great vids on Youtube this morning from a TV show in 1962 called the Jazz Scene USA. The show was hosted by Oscar Brown Jr. and was very hip. Great camera angles and I am sure was very progressive for its time.

This particular episode featured the Stan Kenton Orchestra. One of the vids was Waltz of the Prophets and it ended with a little tuba lick and the camera closed right in on the tuba player and eventually faded out on the bell, cool shot.

Name that tuba player

What a great show.

I have been away for a couple of weeks due to some surgeries I am having (nothing serious, or I'd be out of Vietnam!)

If you would, PLEASE post a link for this YouTube video, I could tell you.

Thanks.

With baritone AND bass saxes (and I see ANOTHER bari sax sitting by the bass sax player), and I think I briefly saw a BIG trombone in there (not sure).


Got bass? :D

Bob, if you haven't checked it out yet, dig the '62 version of Malaguena...

Part of the gig. I had some friends who played in Buddy Rich's band, and if you didn't stop EVERYTHING and look directly at Mr. Rich while he was playing a solo, you were out on your @$$...

Nothing like responding to a 5 year old thread.I found this going thru the site. The Tuba player name is Dave Wheeler also Bass Trombone. The other Bass Trombone player is Jim Amlotte.

I never saw this footage, but Jay MacAllister played with Kenton for a while.

Most of the links on this thread have expired, but the Stan Kenton-Malaguena is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TN9sp6ApX4o
(one of my favorite versions, and/or Maynard's even if they are overdone by some D&BC.) There might be other clips from the episode.

BTW, I also like The Tubes version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJx9g7S48AQ - no tuba content. I saw them on that 1974 tour in San Jose - what a show!
