Don’t Be Bored: Get Neophonic

Controversy continues to rage over Stan Kenton, the jazz big-band leader who would have been 100 years old this week. The uproar stems not only from his daughter’s allegations that Kenton, who died of alcoholism-related causes in 1979, sexually assaulted her as a child; the pianist and composer remains artistically controversial, too. Was his “neophonic” [...]
