  5. The series of ‘Concerts in Miniature’, minute broadcasts, went from April until November They document the life and music of Kenton’s finest band for that period of time. They are a unique record. The orchestra was the greatest band of Kenton’s career including: Lee Konitz, Frank Rosolino, Zoot Sims and Bill Holman.
  6. Kenton began writing music in his teens, was a pianist and arranger for dance bands in the s, and was influenced by Earl Hines as a pianist and by Claude Thornhill and Benny Carter as an arranger. Kenton formed his own band in and continued forming bands and touring almost until his death. Much of Kenton’s music is more like nonswing 20th-century concert music than jazz or dance.
