1. Prologue
2. Something's Coming
3. Maria
4. America
5. Tonight
6. Cool
7. I Feel Pretty
8. Officer Krupke
9. Taunting Scene
10. Somewhere - Finale.

Thanks for your wonder Stan Kenton West Side Story offering. Kenton was a genius. Somehow we don't get that too much today. His version of this mdic is so exciting and vibrant. Keep 'em coming. I enjoy all your great choices. Let's revise that big band era.

Love Kenton takes on popular music, especially show tunes. And I lost my copy of this ages ago. Thanks!

Stan Kenton was easy on the ears but w/o sounding too cheesy ala Lawrence "Wild Man" Welk.

Thank you for posting this! I'm glad I found it before the link expired.
