 Notes & Reviews
 
Merry Stan Kenton Christmas! This unique collection of holiday cheer performed by the Boston Brass features the great Christmas charts from the Kenton Band plus two new ones by JD Shaw and Sam Pilafian. While these great arrangements are a big part of Stan Kenton Christmas Carols, they are only part of the story. The other part is the collection of players known as the Brass All-Stars Big Band. The brass quintet Boston Brass, one of the busiest and best known quintets working today, is the foundation for this extended group, and they are the ones that came up with the idea of doing a new recording of Kenton's music. If you look at the names of the players, you will see amongst them many current or former members of Canadian Brass and Empire Brass.
