GRAMMY FINALIST: This recording is a tribute to a legendary figure in jazz, Stan Kenton. He maintained his orchestra by inventing new directions in music from 1941 to 1979, and he was synonymous with contemporary innovation, being an avid promoter of this new and different music. While Kenton kept an active road band, he also founded the Los Angeles Neophonic Orchestra in 1964. Led by Stan, the Neophonic Orchestra consisted of the top jazz and studio players and its mission was to perform new and innovative works. The Kim Richmond Concert Jazz Orchestra shares this mission. A jazz veteran who has been around for many years, Kim Richmond has played with Stan Kenton (1967), Clare Fischer (1968), Louie Bellson (1969-72), Lalo Schifrin (1979), Bob Florence (1979), Les Brown (1989), Bill Holman (1990), Vinny Golia (1991), Johnny Mandel, Chris Walden, and Clay Jenkins, among many others. He arranged professionally from the 1960s, for Schifrin, Buddy Rich, and Ernie Watts among others. Founded his Concert Jazz Orchestra in southern California to perform his own works, and has worked extensively as a session musician, arranger, director, and conductor for studios and popular musicians.
