The music was written to better reflect the style of cutting edge, be-bop oriented big bands; like those of Dizzy Gillespie or Woody Herman. Young, talented players and outstanding jazz soloists such as Maynard FergusonLee KonitzConte CandoliSal Salvadorand Frank Rosolino made strong contributions to the level of the —'53 band. The music composed and arranged during this time was far more tailor made to contemporary jazz tastes; the album New Concepts of Artistry in Rhythm is noted as one of the high points in Kenton's career as band leader.
Though the band was to have a very strong "concert book", Kenton also made sure the dance book was made new, fresh and contemporary. The album Sketches on Standards from is an excellent example of Kenton appealing to a wider audience while using the band and Bill Russo 's arranging skills to their fullest potential.
Even though the personnel changed rather rapidly, Kenton's focus was very clear on where he would lead things musically. By this time producer Lee Gillette worked well in concert with Kenton to create a balanced set of recordings that were both commercially viable and cutting edge musically.
Arguably the most "swinging" band Kenton was to field Dancing In The Dark - Mike Mareen - MP3 Collection when legendary drummer Mel Lewis joined the orchestra in Kenton's Contemporary Concepts and Kenton in Hi-Fi albums during this time are very impressive as a be-bop recording and then a standard dance recording respectively.

Feather Malaguena - Stan Kenton And His Orchestra - Stan Kenton Today: Recorded Live In London that Kenton's failure to win the Critics Poll was probably the real reason for the complaint, and wondered if racial prejudice was involved. In hindsight the record shows Kenton's biggest sin is to have hastily fired off the comments.
By the end of the decade Kenton was with the last incarnation of a piece, '50s-style Kenton orchestra. Many bands have been called a leader's "best"; this last Kenton incarnation of the s bands may very well be the best. The group would pull off one of Kenton's most artistic, subtle and introspective recordings, Standards in Silhouette.
As trombonist Archie LeCoque recalled of this album of very slow ballads, " One of the great triumphs of the Standards in Silhouette album is the mature writing, the combination of the room used, a live group with very few overdubs, and the recording being in full stereo fidelity and later remastered to digital.
Mathieu adds: "Stan and producer Lee Gillette were absolutely right: the band sounds alive and awake which is not easy when recording many hours of slow-tempo music in a studioand most importantly, the players could hear themselves well in the live room. The end result is the band sounds strong and cohesive, and the album is well recorded. The Kenton orchestra had been on a slow decline in sales and popularity in the late s with having to compete with newer, popular music artists such as Elvis PresleyBobby Darin and The Platters.
The nadir of this decline was around and coincided with a recession that was affecting the entire country.

Tex Ritter! This album was not a financial success but kept Kenton at the forefront of 'art music' interpretation in the commercial music world. Stan Kenton Conducts the Los Angeles Neophonic Orchestra was an artistic success that garnered another Grammy nomination for the band leader.

Capitol producer Lee Gillette was trying to exploit the money making possibilities of numerous popular hits to include the musical Hair featuring contemporary rock music. Two exceptions to this late s period are the Billboard charted single the band cut of the Dragnet theme and another Kenton presents release featuring the music of composer and ex-bandsman Dee Barton : The Jazz Compositions of Dee Barton The album featuring Barton's music was another unsung artistic success for the Kenton band though widely unseen commercially by the a music listening public.
The transition from Capitol to Creative World Records in was fraught with difficulties during a time when the music business was changing rapidly.
