Customer Reviews

One of the best

Having been a fan of Stan Kenton since I was a teenager, I have heard several Kenton tribute recordings. "The Legacy of Stan Kenton" is one of the best in this category and does the Kenton memory proud. The level of musicianship is astounding! In my humble opinion, I would rate this ensemble right up with any civilian professional jazz ensemble. Len Levy

A Jazz Revolutionary

Pianist and arranger Stan Kenton was the leader of a succession of different big bands, beginning with his Artistry in Rhythm Orchestra in 1941 during the big band boom. Through the years, the size of his bands varied, expanding to as many as 40 players, including strings, French horns, and supplemental percussion. His bands were known as the loudest big bands since he frequently employed extra bras players. Kenton's bands performed with great ensemble precision and intonation and emphasized composition over improvisation. His band continued to remain popular through the 1970s. Kenton was also one of the ground breakers in jazz education and fostered jazz studies on many university campuses. You are sure to enjoy Kentons fresh take on jazz as much as I do. If you love jazz or just great American music you are sure to love this album. If you like this one check out other albums by the US Army Field Band Jazz Ambassadors in the legacy of series. Two of my favorites are The Legacy of Hank Levy or The Legacy of Benny Carter. They are both great albums. army band , army bands , army field band , army the band , band army of , army brass band , army band new , united states army band , and army band, army band music , army marching band , states army band , army band concert , army band of the , army national band , army of one band
