New York Neophonic Orchestra - Alternate Routes (CD)
Release Date: 06/04/96
Stan Kenton Mellophonium Band alumni Ray Starling and Joel Kaye direct jazz orchestras augmented full french horn.
It was Stan Kenton who coined the term 'neophonic' to describe the music created by his adventurous L.A.-based orchestra in the mid '60s. He also introduced the mellophonium as part of a Jazz orchestra. This exhilarating two-disc set deftly employs and amplifies Kenton's groundbreaking concepts in splendid recordings made by two of his former sidemen, Ray Starling (Disc 1) and Joel Kaye (Disc 2).
