Schmit revived the band with Vince Gill and Glenn’s son Deacon taking Glenn’s place. After playing a pair of festivals in 2017, the group went on tour in 2018, a jaunt that included a three-night stop at the Forum in Los Angeles.Read More

This unique album is a surprising artistic success. Stan Kenton and a large studio orchestra filled with many of his alumni perform his adaptations of eight themes from the classical works of Richard Wagner. Somehow Kenton turns Wagner’s music into jazz, capturing the intense emotion, pomposity and drama with daring ideas. Not for all tastes, this LP was one of Stan Kenton’s last innovative recordings.Read More
