California dreamin’—the relaxed, sun- drenched culture of California made its way into jazz in a decidedly non-East Coast way during the 1950s, as the “West Coast” style of jazz emerged around Los Angeles and San Francisco. Kenton and Mulligan traded the virtuosic, frenetic energy of East Coast jazz for a more relaxed, thoughtful approach to the music. In the years following WWII, this new sound of jazz appealed to big band fans forever changed by the experience of war. This concert features Mulligan’s entertaining Sweet and Low and provocative Manoir De Mes Reves (Django’s Castle), Kenton’s powerhouse hits Decoupage and Artistry in Rhythm, and Jerome Kern's All the Things You Are arranged by Mulligan for the Kenton Orchestra.
