Stanley Newcomb Kenton (December 15, 1911 – August 25, 1979) was an American popular music and jazz artist. As a pianist, composer, arranger and band leader he led an innovative and influential jazz orchestra for almost four decades. Though Kenton had several pop hits from the early 1940s into the 1960s, his music was always forward looking. Kenton was also a pioneer in the field of jazz education, creating the Stan Kenton Jazz Camp in 1959 at Indiana University.

Stan Kenton: Kenton Showcase by William Grim, published on October 14, 2002. This re-release is composed of two Kenton albums from the 1950s showcasing the arrangements of Bill Russo and Bill Holman. Russo and Holman were more responsible for defining the Kenton sound than any other arrangers besides Kenton himself and Peter Rugolo. It is a testament to the greatest of Kenton's bands that they could acccomodate both the edgy intellectualism of Russo and the easy going swing of Holman at the same time.
