Historic Watering Spot ST. THOMAS. Virgin Islands (UPI) — Water Island, a 500- acre island in St. Thomas Harbour, is famous as a watering spot for everyone from pirates to millionaires. Now a posh resort, it got its name from pirates who used to land there for supplies of fresh water. It was a whistling, cheering audience thai filled Redlands Bowl last evening. The drawing card was the appearance of Stan Kenton and His Orchesrta — an attraction that seemed to appeal to several generations, with youth •predominating among the 6.000 or more present. \ It was a '"come early" night for those who aspired to choice j seats for the program. Many ! were there before 7 o'clock with j their picnic suppers and one en- i terprising foursome brought j along a card table for a bridge game to help while away the time. Adding a delicate touch were the dishes and candies placed at the corners of the : table. By the time the popular jazz maestro and his group of 18 musicians appeared on stage, the crowd had swelled to capacity and a great, spontaneous roar went up, pierced by shrieks and whistles. Audience reaction to what .they heard was heavily weighted on the favorable side. They loved the relaxed Kenton, wandering about the stape. beaming with approval at the sounds made by his band, quipping jovially with them at inter- PATIO COFFEE SHOP 7th & State Street Redlands Thanks to our Customers for for a wonderful year.

"I'm having a lovely time." said a woman from Fontana; who appeared to be in her late 60's. | One elderly gentleman, com-! fortably seated on a garden^ chair brought from home, tapped his foot and swayed his; head in time with the bis. bras-' sy music from the stage. He; stayed to the very end. Mesmerized teen-agers stared hypnotically as the players ranged through music that, in Mr. Kenton's own words, is "some easy lo take, some experimental and some gets really strong." The stronger the better, his fans seemed to answer. After each solo by saxophonist, trombonist, trumpeter or drummer applause exploded. Naturally, there wee a few dissenters. A voice from behind whispered, afier about 15 minutes of amplified brass. "Can't we leave at intermission? I can'i stand any more." A young man in his mid- 20's explained that he hadn't checked to sec who was putting on the program last evening. "I should have found out what was on first." he said. "Guess this just isn't my kind of music." A scattered few left after the : first quarter hour, one woman complaining that "they don't have a single woodwind. It's all brass.'" At the program's end. it was the pre-teens, mostly, who were poised and ready for the spring to the stage to swarm around; their idol with requests for an\ autograph. i Later, at a garden reception 1 for Mr. Kenton given by Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Melzer at their , Country Club drive home a wom- jan guest displayed an early | Stan Kenton record which she i described as "nearly a collec- | tor's item." She had brought lit to have the jacket auto(graphed for her young daughter. "Imagine." she said. "Here I worked at MGM for 10 years land never once asked for a sin- Sgle autograph!"

JORGENSON Stan Kenton and his orchestra came to the Redlands Bowl last night, and Redlands came to the Bow! too. A capacity audience came early, stayed through a long intermission, and was there at the end to give this great jazz leader and his powerful band a standing ovation. That the public has waited for this type of programming in the total spectrum of the bowl's offerings was well evidenced in the capacity crowd. We arc told that there were more information calls received in the Bowl offices about this concert than any concert in the Bowl's history. Kenton, one of the most durable leaders in the jazz field, is a master in programming. His sense of crowd response allows him the flexibility to move from one number to the next in such a way as to keep the audience "up" at all times. For this reason the printed program listed the numbers to be played but not in a program order. Kentone emcees in a comfortable and casual way and his obvious enjoyment of his men and his audience is returned in their response to him. Kenton introduced his program as consisting of easy to take, experimental, and hard to take, which probably can be compared to his three periods — the early Kenton band identified with the Laguna days of the "Swing era", the middle period of "progressive jazz", and his latest efforts in the Neophonic Orchestra. Although the instrumentation of the band did not include the horns and some of the more exotic Instruments used in his neophonic albums. Dee Barton's arrangements particularly showed the new direction of Kenton's sounds, with English horn and flute, and complex polyrhythmic treatment. Kenton's band is first a trombone sound and his big and powerful five man section was led by Dick Shearer. Shearer not only displayed his ability to lead in the ballad style of "Rainy Day", and in the many punctuated driving trombone sections heard in such selec­ tions as "Peanut Vendor" — he also scored heavily in the many solo- jazz lines and improvisational opportunities spread throughout the evening. Two improvisational artists jbear a large responsibility in the Kenton organization and it is bard to imagine any two jazz artists who could speak more beautifully than alto sax and flute soloist Ray Reed and .lay jDeversa. Particularly in the fas- 'cinating Dee Barton original 'entitled (from his new album) , "Woman" did we have insight 'into the depth of their Improvi­ satory talents as they appeared in duct line (flute and muted trumpet) and later in individual interpretations of "Woman" as motivated by the beautiful and 'complex vehicle which Dee 'Barton has created — a sophisticated and woman-subtle, complex and surprising. Particularly effective here was the alternation of five and six time — a Killer whale dies of broken heart i REDWOOD CITY. Calif. (UPI) — Bonnie, the 8.000- pound killer whale at Marine World who gave birth to a stillborn infant last month, died Tuesday—apparently of a broken heart. Bradford Baruh. vice president of the new aquatic park. [said Bonnie lost her appetite following the delivery of the dead j baby, the first killer whale born i in captivity. i Baruh said during the month ]of obvious mourning, Bonnie re: fused to cat normally or go near Ihor mate. Clyde. He said sea life experts have • recorded that other marine creatures, including otters and dolphins, have died of grief after stillbirths. , Nevertheless. Baruh said, an autopsy will be held. complex - meter handled with complete ease by the entire or-] chestra. Numbers such as "Woman" and "MacArthur Park" represent the new direction of "jazz" as it interweaves and 1 identifies itself with the pulse of American concert music. It was \ good l6 hear the old favorites ("Peanut Vendor." "Intermis-' sion Riff," "Malaguena," "To-; night,") and the new favorites' ("Rainy Day" and "Girl Talk").| Old or new. the ever-searching: Kenton style is always adding a new twist. All is anchored on a rhythmic drive which provides the pulse contact which Kenton establishes with his listeners. Bar-! ton's driving drum style sets I the pace for a superb rhythm section which includes the beautiful melodts lines and driving beats of string bassist John 1 Smith and the sophisticated bongo and Latin American percussion artist Efraim Lagrandc. I This concert provided the Uni -i versity of Redlands and Red-! lands Bowl with an opportunity' to work together in providing! an education experience for 110 young musicians studying on campus with the Kenton Clinic as well as an outstanding Bowl program. Kenton's concern for the young musicians is such that he programmed two of them at the Bowl concert. Drummer Stan Reefe was heard while Dee Barton directed his concert version of "MacArthur Park," and Mike Francis directed his own composition. "The Creator," part of a three movement Jazz suite by this talented young San Jose composer. The Kenton Clinics continue through Friday at the U.R. with nightly concerts in the Casa Loma Room and a final concert Friday evening featuring all the students, the Junior Neo­ phonic Orchestra and the Kenton Orchestra.
