Stan Kenton: The Thrill Is Gone

Married to Kenton for a few years, Ann Richards has her fans and detractors as a singer. Many listeners feel that her best work was with the maestro's band. "The Thrill Is Gone" was recorded during the same sessions that produced one of the band's finest albums, Contemporary Concepts, so the band was in a good place musically and personally. Noto has a short solo, but the focus is on Richards, who does a good job with this difficult song.
