Sophisticated Approach Review

by Ron Wynn

An early-'60s Kenton Orchestra release, Sophisticated Approach features the ensemble when it was beginning to acquire a reputation for being more interested in structure and discipline than swing. The arrangements are tight, there's a minimum of solo space, and the songs are uneven.
