Legends Kenton & Ferguson on October 16, 3PM at The Emerson Center

Frank Wosar leads the Space Coast Symphony Jazz Orchestra in an incredible tribute to two of the most important figures in jazz, Stan Kenton and Maynard Ferguson. Kenton was known for his big blaring horn sections—his was the original “wall of sound” long before Phil Spector developed a similar concept in pop and rock. The concert will feature an enlarged big band (the same size as Kenton’s) playing a number of songs written and arranged by Kenton, including Malaguena, Peanut Vendor, and A Little Minor Booze. The concert will also pay homage to trumpeter and composer, Maynard Ferguson. Ferguson came to prominence playing in Stan Kenton’s orchestra before forming his own band in 1957. Selections from Ferguson will include Coconut Champagne, Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me, Birdland, MacArthur Park, and many more!
