Album Review

Stan Kenton's final studio recording features his young no-name crew (only trumpeter Tim Hagans among the soloists is notable today) showing enthusiasm and impressive musicianship on charts by Hank Levy, Mark Taylor, and Alan Yankee. Highlights include Yankee's adaptation of Chick Corea's "Celebration Suite," Levy's "Pegasus," and Hagans' solos. The leader's piano is featured on Stevie Wonder's "Too Shy to Say." This decent recording closed Stan Kenton's rather remarkable career.

Journey Into Capricorn Stan Kenton

Mr. Kenton's best of the later albums. "Too Shy To Say" is a sweet, haunting piece so well done by the entire crew. I would recommend this album for all those appreciate big band swing/jazz, and especially for all of the older Kenton fans. Elroy

Fantastic Album

This is a very unique & fun Kenton album. All tracks are highly recommended!
