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. Sophisticated Approach is an album by the Stan Kenton Orchestra recorded in 1961 and released by Capitol Records. In 2006, Sophisticated Approach was digitally remastered and reissued on CD for the first time by Capitol RecordsBlue Note Records and included six bonus tracks, including the non-album single, Magic Moment.

The Donald Rumsfeld of American big band jazz in the 1940s and 1950s, Stan Kenton didn't so much embrace his audiences as shock-n-awe them into submission with relentless carpet bombing. Kenton's monstrous orchestras-the most overblown being the 43-piece Innovations In Modern Music outfit of the early 1950s-specialised in heavy-footed, portentous, screaming brass performances which left zero space for light and shade, spontaneous improvisation or loose rhythmic swing.
