Article move from "Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Big Band" to "Vanguard Jazz Orchestra"
I was surprised to see this page moved to a different title. I would recommend the article be returned to its original title. According to the "What links here" listing, there are currently around 20 wiki articles that reference the "Thad Jones / Mel Lewis Big Band" directly and only a few (~3) that seem to reference the "Vanguard Jazz Orchestra" uniquely (i.e. only a few that reference the orchestra as it exists post Jones/Lewis). This seems to support the assumption that the "Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Big Band" (and/or "...Orchestra") is the more useful and relevant article title. These ~20 references are specifically to the band as it existed during the period with Thad Jones and Mel Lewis as co-leaders and not to the later VJO incarnation. I think the previous arrangement made more sense ("Vanguard Jazz Orchestra" redirects to "Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Big Band"). One could always start a new article for the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra if desired. Pugetbill 14:13, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
