Episode Summary

Show C
This episode features Stan Kenton and his band, folk vocal group The New Christy Minstrels, folk singing duo Joe and Eddie, "cool jazz" trumpeter Shorty Rogers and his Giants and pop pianist Peter Nero. Nero performs "Something's Coming" and the Rogers group does "Not Really the Blues," both set at a Nike missile base, while the New Christy Minstrels live it up at a beach party with "Saint's Train" (a hybrid of "When the Saints Come Marching In" and "This Train"). Damone is featured with "Charmaine" in a studio recording session and Joe and Eddie perform "Did You Hear About Jerry?" in a nightclub setting. In director Barry Shear's far-out department, Kenton leads an orchestra of disembodied instruments for "Malaguena" and a Mobilux film fuses abstract objects with a jazz background.moreless
