Here's the story of Stan Kenton and His Orchestra from 1941 to '47 by a man who was there. Ed Gabel was a high school kid when he first heard the Kenton Orchestra in Chicago in 1942. Before that day was over Stan had offered him a job! For the next five years - virtually the entire life of Kenton's "Artistry in Rhythm" Orchestra, Gabel ("Gabe") helped out with everything from wrestling equipment to choosing the songs to be played on live remote radio broadcasts. There were tense military flights heading for performances of the Bob Hope radio show, long days and nights at the Paramount Theater in New York, and all the problems (and fun) of a road band trying to keep going during the war. The book provides fresh insight into the dynamic, legendary leader who would not be denied his dream! Foreword by Pete Rugolo
