Capitol/Collectors Choice, 1958. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Although Stan Kenton's always best known for his famous work with 50s LA reedmen, he's equally great at working with strings as he is with saxes – as you'll hear on this sparkling 2CD set!

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

Smooth fusion from one of the greats – and although an 80s set, a record that still holds onto most of the best warmth of Earl Klugh's earlier years! The production is surprisingly laidback at points – never too many 80s gimmicks or easy attempts at a hit – and Earl plays with ... read more CD

Very groovy work from Marian Montgomery – an overlooked 60s singer who had a wonderful "punch" in her voice!

A pretty strange concept for an album – a bunch of LA jazz players get together and do versions of songs usually associated with the south!

Ann's a more lustily voiced singer than the sort that usually worked with Stan Kenton during the 50s – with a deep range in her delivery of a song, and a mode of singing that's a bit more unbridled than you'd expect for someone working under Stan.
