Another selection from Kenton's London appearance in 1972.
A Little Minor Booze is composed and arranged by Willie Maiden. I don't know who the alto soloist is. I'm assuming Quin Davis, since he has it on the album, and the style is similar. Flugelhorn solo by Ray Brown.
One interesting detail on the arrangement is the syncopated scale passage at 4:05 - just before the bass trombone pedal at 4:11, has 2nd trombone ascending and 3rd trombone descending. They cross somewhere near the middle (or maybe the top) of the bass clef.
