「A Merry Christmas – Stan Kenton (Capital ST 1621)」は、ピアニスト、スタン・ケントン(Stan Kenton)の楽団が1960年代に録音したクリスマス・アルバム。

最近、とある事情で彼の作品を聴いていた時に、ふと、見つけたアルバムです。

トラディショナルなクリスマスソングを、壮大なビックバンドアレンジで奏でる企画モノアルバムで、8分にも及ぶ「Christmas Medley」が最大の目玉。

「You Tube」などで検索すると、「Angels, We Have Heard On」など演奏した映像が見つかるので、多分、現在もビックバンドのスコア(楽譜)が出回っているんでしょうね。


2003年に、マイケル・カスクーナ監修の元、キャピトル(ブルーノート)から再発売されたCDは、ボーナストラックとして、何故かメイナード・ファーガソン楽団の「Christmas For Moderns」が
追加されております。
