“About that Stan Kenton band,” comedian Mort Sahl was telling audiences around this time, “a waiter dropped a tray and three couples got up to dance.” Sahl was, in fact, one of Kenton’s greatest boosters, but his quip was a revealing expression of the bandleader’s general reputation, by now well earned, for the unusual and excessive.
The Innovations band of 1950 aimed at integrating a large string section permanently into the group. This presented numerous problems, both musical (the strings were easily drowned out by the screaming brass) and practical (the band put Kenton some $125,000 in the red after just four months). The Innovations band’s repertoire was built around a series of eponymous pieces designed to feature individual group members—Shorty Rogers’s “Art Pepper” and “Maynard Ferguson,” Kenton’s “Shelly Manne” and “June Christy”—as well as workout pieces for individual sections of the band, such as Bill Russo’s “The Halls of Brass” or Graettinger’s “House of Strings.”
