MY FAVORITE SIGN …

Blog owner’s note: Please read my good friend’s KaRidder234’s little essay on this greatly swingin’ track —

One of the very first tunes of Stan Kenton I ever heard. ∽∽ It’s been presented on radio by a collector who played the original shellack; I have taped the complete broadcast in the early 1980’s, and later found the original 10″ LP from where I have taken this track.

The great Vido Musso plays one of his fabulous vibrant tenor solos, Jimmy Simms does a brief interlude on trombone, and Stan Kenton, the composer & arranger of this chart can be heard on piano throughout the number.

Painted Rhythm, composed & arranged by Stan Kenton. — Recorded in New York for Capitol Records, on October 31, 1945.

Trumpets: Ray Wetzel, Buddy Childers, John Anderson, Bob Lymperis & Russ Burgher. ∽∽ Trombones: Bart Varsalona, Jimmy Simms, Fred Zito & Milt Kabak. ∽∽ Saxophones: Boots Musulli, Al Anthony, Vido Musso, Bob Cooper & Bob Gioga. ∽∽ Eddie Safranski, Bob Ahern & Ralph Collier are on bass, guitar, and drums.
