The Kenton orchestra was expanded to 27 pieces for these dates including six percussionists, two French horns and six trumpets. With such soloists as tenor-great Lucky Thompson (on "Fuego Cubano,") trombonist Carl Fontana, altoist Lennie Niehaus, Bill Perkins on tenor and trumpeters Sam Noto and Vinnie Tanno, and plenty of raging ensembles, this is one of Stan Kenton's more memorable concept albums of the 1950s.

Duration: 54:06 Year: 1991. Dean Martin - The Dean Martin Christmas Album. Michel Legrand - Big Band. Michel Legrand - Le Jazz Grand.

The 1991 CD re-issue is augmented with one extra track from the 1956 sessions and five cuts recorded four years later by the first of Kenton’s mellophonium orchestras. This CD contains one of the classic Stan Kenton albums, a six-part suite composed and arranged by Johnny Richards.
