Stan kenton and his orchestra - national anthems of the world


The Preservation Hall Jazz Band derives its name from Preservation Hall, the venerable music venue located in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter, founded in 1961 by Allan and Sandra Jaffe. The band has traveled worldwide spreading their mission to nurture and perpetuate the art form of New Orleans Jazz. Whether performing at Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center, for British Royalty or the King of Thailand, this music embodies a joyful, timeless spirit. Under the auspices of current director, Ben Jaffe, the son of founders Allan and Sandra, Preservation Hall continues with a deep reverence and consciousness of its greatest attributes in the modern day as a venue, band, and record label.

The screaming "walls of brass" that were as characteristic of a Kenton performance as the richly somber trombones and the heavy, staccato saxophones were alternately hailed as "progressive" explorations of an alliance between jazz and classical music and deplored as sheer noise. Arthur Fiedler, the late conductor of the Boston Pops, called Mr. Kenton the most important link between jazz and the classics. But Albert J. McCarthy, an English critic, declared that Mr. Kenton's music screamed "because it can make its point no other way."

Program 1182: The War Department’s V-Disc program of providing specially recorded musical entertainment to our troops around the world began in the Summer of 1943.  To observe the occasion, Nostalgia Digest columnist KARL PEARSON joins us for an afternoon of musical history and memories.  Among the seldom-heard V-Disc selections to be presented are those recorded by Hal McIntyre, Glenn Miller, Eddy Howard, Benny Goodman Quartet, Louis Prima, Bing Crosby with Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Spike Jones, Ethel Merman and Connee Boswell.
