Stan Kenton7.5 On The Richter Scale ... LP
Creative World, 1973. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Funky stuff from Stan – a very different album than usual! The style here is 70s big band funk – mixing the usual horn-heavy frontline with some electric bass and more of the groove that was showing up with the European big bands at the time – particularly those on the MPS label. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Stan KentonAdventures In Time ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good- ... $1.99
Later modern work by Kenton – but still pretty darn great! The album features arrangements by Johnny Richards – clever explorations in time that still swing with that nice Richards touch, played by a group that features a number of lesser-known younger players, including Don Menza, who' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stan KentonCuban Fire ... LP
Capitol, 1956. Near Mint- ... $4.99
One of Kenton's greatest records, and the one in which he proves his dedication to Latin styles, by serving up a killer batch of Afro-Cuban tracks with an incredibly authentic feel.

Stan KentonKenton In Hi-Fi ... LP

Stan KentonPortraits In Strings ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $3.99
Beautiful work from Kenton – lush string settings that have as much power and imagination as his work with horns, and which come across with some really dark edges. The tunes are awash in color and tone – never sleepy strings, but edgey ones, as in the mode of Ralph Burns' best ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1973. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Sweet electric funk from Robin Kenyatta – but a set with some slightly complicated moments too! The album's a bit like some of Yusef Lateef's more electric moments on Atlantic, although probably not as cerebral overall – and Robin plays a range of reeds, including alto, flute, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Well, if you've ever heard Barney play guitar, you know that he doesn't always cook – or at least not as hotly as other players – but this album is a nice batch of tracks that goes way beyond Kessel's usual uptight sound.
