Album Review

Stan Kenton's young "no-name" big band of the 1970s performs ambitious works by Ken Hanna, Hank Levy, Willie Maiden and Bill Holman on this live double LP. The musicianship is impressive and some of the arrangements are quite dramatic but not all that much originality is shown. A lot of soloists are heard from but few of them would have significant jazz careers after their period with Kenton ended; the main exceptions are veteran saxophonist Willie Maiden, trumpeter Mike Vax, trombone Dick Shearer and drummer John Von Ohlen. This set is well-played but forgettable.

Customer Reviews

You can't beat live!

Boy, live recordings really tell you how good a band is. It's always a splash of cold water to hear a live recording of a college or community big band. We don't always remember that little mistake here or there until the playback. This album is remarkable in the individual musicianship and stunning ensemble playing. What ears these cats had! As well rehearsed as any symphony orchestra, this Kenton recording is, in my opinion, the best.
Listen to the band shift into the swing section in "Malaga" and I think you'll agree that we're listening to the top of an art form.
